Ghyston is a mythological character from Bristol folklore. He was one of two giants, Goram and Ghyston, who vied for the love of the beautiful Princess Avona.
Avona set them both the challenge of draining a lake between Bradford-on-Avon and Bristol.
Ghyston’s opponent, overworked and overheated, drank too much and fell asleep. Ghyston on the other hand was keen, strong, industrious, and bright, pacing himself to successfully complete, and win, the challenge.
His work created the dramatic Avon gorge, and won the heart of Avona.
