Event description

Description

A general walk around Badock's Wood Local Nature Reserve in Southmead.

Badock's Wood is a small, semi-natural, broad-leaved woodland along with a number of wildflower meadows. It also has a number of attractive wooden sculptures and benches.

It lies in the north-west of Bristol, between Henleaze and Southmead. It therefore provides a wildlife haven in an urban setting. There is also a Bronze Age burial mound see photo.

This hidden haven for wildlife has an accessible gate at Doncaster Road and much of the walk will take place on tarmac paths in reasonable condition.

There are some slopes but most of the walk is on the flat.

We will stroll around enjoying the nature reserve, and walk leader Frances Robertson will point out things of interest.

Frances is not a bird, tree or wildflower expert.

If you are looking for walks on these topics please visit our website and select a relevant walk.

This walk is free but donations are welcomed.

Thank you.
