Enjoy some glorious countryside in springtime on this 3 mile walk in the Publow valley.

The walk will take place across the site of Avon Needs Trees’ developing ‘Great Avon Wood’ where we have been planting thousands of young trees over the last two winters. See the woodland as it starts to take shape amongst the other habitats at the site – meadows, hedgerows and streams.

The walk will also take in other landscape features as it crosses the route of the old Bristol and North Somerset Railway, passes the ancient Publow Oak, and meets a section of the Wansdyke – a post-Roman defensive earthworks.

This walk is aimed at adults and young people who feel able to cover the 3 mile route which includes slopes and uneven ground. There are no hard-standing paths at Great Avon Wood and we are not able to allow dogs at events, except for assistance dogs. This walk can be joined by public transport as the 376 and 172 buses that run between Bristol and Wells drop off 5 minutes walk form the start of the route – full travel directions sent out when you register.

This event is part of Bristol Walk Fest. It is free to attend and we are very grateful to the National Lottery Heritage Fund for their support.
