Northern Slopes

Northern Slopes

The Northern Slopes are made up of three green spaces near to Knowle and Bedminster in South Bristol.  Wedmore Vale (the Bommie) and Glyn Vale are designated Local Nature Reserves and home to many species of birds, slow worms, badgers and hedgehogs. There are wildflower meadows and woods with streams to explore, and if you make it the top, beautiful views over Bristol to the suspension bridge.

The Northern Slopes Initiative is a group of volunteers seeking to maintain, conserve and enhance the Northern Slopes. They have big ambitions as to how the Slopes can be a nature reserve for the health and well-being of people and wildlife.

Location: The Northern Slopes Nature Reserve, Daventry Road, Bristol, BS4 1DQ
