Don't miss our next Urban Wandering walk, find out how people are supporting a nature-rich landscape at the community-driven green space Horfield Common. This circular guided walk will be led by Matt Collis from Avon Wildlife Trust and Sam Thomson from Bristol Parkhive, UWE, Bristol Parks Forum and Friends of Horfield Common.

These groups are all working to improve Horfield Common. From encouraging wildlife, growing food, improving sports facilities to opening a café, come and hear stories about the variety of initiatives planned and in place to look after and encourage use of this green space.

The walk will last up to 90 minutes. The walk passes over some uneven ground. Please wear suitable footwear and clothing.

The walk will start from the Café on the Common, by the Ardagh pavilion, please check you know how to get there before travelling.

Getting there

A variety of buses travel from Bristol city centre to Horfield Common including the 70, 72, 73, 75, 76. Depending on which bus you catch (check before you travel), it may be best to get off at either Nevil Road or Ashley Down stops on Gloucester Road. Walk up Gloucester Road and turn left onto Church Road, left onto Maple Road, then first right onto Ash Road up to the park; once in the park, walk straight up alongside trees with tennis courts on your left. At the top there is a car park which follows round to the café area where we will meet before the start of the walk.

More information about using public transport to reach Horfield Common can be found at Traveline Southwest. Please consult a map before travelling to ensure you know where the meeting place is on the Common.

There are also limited car parking spaces at the Ardagh, by the Café on the Common; access via Kellaway Avenue.

This event is part of the City Ideas Studio programme focussing on Nature, which features projects including Bristol Parkhive and Avon Wildlife Trust's #MyWildCity project.
