Overview

'The idea to produce some Community Walks arose from the Community Plan consultation which highlighted the fact that many people did not know where the local open spaces, playing fields and parks are or the potential walks they could do in our area. We are very lucky that we have good access to green space and countryside from Downend and Bromley Heath. Each of the walks starts from one of the Open Spaces in our Parish so we hope you will get to know these and that lots of you will then be able to stride out and enjoy the walks we have chosen.'

Size (acreage)270
Overview

'Originally an ancient deer park, Dyrham Park remains home to a herd of almost 200 fallow deer and a vibrant landscape perfect for a long walk, picnic and family fun ... There are many different directions you can head in to explore the park, but the Prospect walk is a real must. Follow the tree-lined avenue towards Old Lodge and head beyond to the topograph where, on a good day, you can see past the Severn bridges to the Black Mountains in Wales.'

Overview

'OutdoorsWest is a project set up by the Councils in the area, that's Bath & North East Somerset Council, Bristol City Council and South Gloucestershire Council. Whilst we were preparing a Rights of Way Improvment Plan, we were told that people wanted more information, and if there was a website with information on walks, rides and cycle routes they'd use our paths more. So, here's the product.'
