Folly Farm Centre is the Trust's sustainable education and event venue, situated in the heart of our 250-acre nature reserve in the Chew Valley.

Folly Farm Centre promotes better understanding of biodiversity and sustainable development, engaging with school children, the business community and the general public, through weddings and events.

Avon Wildlife Trust has owned and managed the 250-acre nature reserve since 1986. The Trust has now successfully restored the unspoiled 18th century buildings, to create a regional eco-friendly centre.
