Discover the amazing hidden history of Manor Woods Valley, a small patch of ancient woodland in Bishopsworth.

Listen to moments of the wood’s history from the Saxons to the Seventies retold with humour and song by award-winning theatre company Brave Bold Drama. It will be led by Gill Simmons and Paul Lawless, the sound walk creators.

What’s a sound walk?
It’s a walk and you’re wearing headphones. When you get to certain locations, your smart phone magically plays some recorded sound that we’ve placed there.

What do I need to bring?
A charged smartphone, headphones and sturdy footwear. We advise you download the free Echoes soundwalk app and the sound walk you’re attending using wifi in advance, by clicking this link:

What if I don’t use a smart phone?
We ​will bring a portable speaker and can play the sounds for you through this.

You can access this walk on the 75 bus, getting off just past Bishopsworth Library.

There is street parking near the start of the walk.
