A comfortable stroll of about 3-4km lasting no more than a couple of hours at a gentle pace, and with shorter walk options for those with limited energy. The walk will start near the pool, and we will walk through woodland, fields and open countryside, looping back to the car park via Manor Road.
Less than 20 minutes drive (or a 30min cycle) from Bristol city centre, Abbots Pool was part of a series of pools used by medieval monks developed for fish farming. Surrounding the pool is idyllic mature woodland containing some massive oak and beech trees. An abundance of wildlife can be found here and most of the area has been designated as a Local Nature Reserve.

Meet at St Andrews Park at 10.30am to share lifts or at the Abbots Pool car park just off Manor Road ready to set off at 11am. Here is a map link.

Family, friends, children and dogs are welcome on the walk, part of which will be in silence. Bring a picnic lunch with you if you wish to have at the end of the walk.

Let Gordon know by Friday 28th if you’d like to come on the walk and whether you would like or can offer a lift.  0779 6087351
