Badock’s Wood is a small, semi-natural, broad-leaved woodland along with a number of wildflower meadows. It lies in the north-west of Bristol, between Henleaze, Westbury-on-Trym and Southmead, providing a wildlife haven in an urban setting. There is also a Bronze Age burial mound (see photo). This hidden haven for wildlife has an accessible gate at Doncaster Road and much of the walk will take place on tarmac paths in reasonable condition. There are some slopes but most of the walk is on the flat. There are some unmade paths which may be muddy but these are optional. As we walk around enjoying the nature reserve, walk leader Frances Robertson will point out things of interest. Frances is not a bird, tree or wildflower expert. This walk is free but donations are welcomed.
