Throughout Bristol's history the gorge has been an important transport route, carrying the River Avon, major roads and two railways. It is the gateway to Bristol Harbour, and provided protection against storms or attack. The Bristol Channel and Avon estuary have a very high tidal range of 15 metres (49 ft), second only to Bay of Fundy in Eastern Canada; and the gorge is relatively narrow and meandering, making it notoriously difficult to navigate.

Internal trade has been largely overlooked. Making use of data derived from the Coastal Port Books, a source hitherto under-used, David Hussey argues that Bristol, in this period, did not stand alone but operated as part of a functioning regional system.

This is the first-ever book-length analysis of England's pre-industrial domestic trading economy, drawing on extensive quantitative data provided by the computerisation of Britain's Portbooks Programme . It is now recognised that internal trade, for too long overlooked by economic historians, provided a vital link in the organization of pre-industrial economics. This book sheds new light on the volume, nature, structure, and mechanisms of coastal and river trade. In addition, the extent to which Bristol acted as a "quasi-metropolis," influencing the direction and conduct of the internal trade of a geographically-extensive region, is exposed to a more critical analysis.
