With stunning views over the city to the north and countryside to the south, being this high up gives a real escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. Explore the network of paths that wind through old woodland, criss-crossing streams lush with ferns and horsetails. Once deep in the woodland you can almost forget you’re in the city at all. The area is rich in wildlife and archaeological interest such as Roman roads, medieval trackways, hedgerows, stone walls, overgrown scrub, limestone grasslands and cropped fields.
Location: Our project site lies to the south of Bishport Avenue in Hartcliffe. Walking routes already exist that advertise ‘the view from Dundry Hill extends for 35 miles; in the north to Bristol and the higher parts of Gloucestershire as far as the Malverns, and the west to the Bristol Channel and the Black Mountains of Wales’
