This audio walk plays from any mobile phone through headphones. If coming with children who don’t have their own phone, we advise the use of headphone splitters so an adult and child can listen together.

The walk is circular, just under one mile, and is on varying terrain with some hills. It is not suitable for pushchairs. Access is from the 75 bus, getting off just past Bishopsworth Library. The entrance to Manor Valley Woods is opposite St Peter’s Rise Convenience Store, 6A St Peter’s Rise, BS13 7LU. Dogs on leads are welcome.

This audio walk has been funded by a Magic Little Grant from Localgiving and the Neighbourly Community Fund, and has been made by Brave Bold Drama, an award-winning theatre & community arts company based close to Bishopsworth in neighbouring Withywood.
