Avon Valley Woodlands – Walking with Cameras

Another wet day at the end of a wet summer. But the trees and plants were very lush, the river and streams full, everywhere was exotically green.

This walk, which follows the Avon for part of its route also explores magnificent woodlands grown up in some 19th century quarries. The stone for eastern pier of the Clifton Supension Bridge is said to have come from here. This once busy place is now quiet and wooded, just the irregularity of the ground and the quarry cliff faces giving away its former identity. It is very well worth exploring – whatever the weather.

The photos on this audio-slideshow were taken by the participants and fellow walkers.

This event was organised by the Arts Unit and the Walking for Health team at South Gloucestershire Council.
