Friends of Badock's Wood

The Friends of Badock’s Wood is a group of local residents and other interested people who help to keep Badock’s Wood a hidden haven for wildlife.

It is a lovely place to walk and experience the local nature of a riverside, woodland and wildflower meadows.

The work of the group has been instrumental in making Badock’s Wood a safe and welcoming place to visit. We have improved access and enhanced Badock’s Wood, in partnership with Bristol City Council, other local community groups and local schools, using grant funding and volunteers.

In 2008 Badock’s Wood was awarded Local Nature Reserve designation. This was achieved in no small part as a result of our volunteers’ efforts to both physically improve the wood and to improve opportunities to enjoy this local open space.

In 2015 as part of the celebrations of Bristol’s European Green Capital Award, the Friends organised a Green Hidden Treasures Project. With funding from the Henleaze, Stoke Bishop and Westbury on Trym Neighbourhood Partnership and a Green Capital Grant we commissioned local sculptor Andy O’Neill to make wildlife sculptures and benches in the wood. As you walk around the wood you will come across these and we hope you enjoy them and make use of them to sit and enjoy the wood.

Today the wood is a place that would have been unrecognisable just a decade ago. Come and visit Badock’s Wood in North Bristol – you’ll really enjoy it!
