All day Circular Walk to Troopers Hill and St Anne's Woods

More spaces on this walk are available via and you can bring guests, the walk and group are also free. 

A  Circular Walk from the Station along Avon Walkway, via Glass Wharf and Totterdown Basin,  cutting through Avon Meads and parts of Barton Hill to Netham Lock, then picking up the walkway again to Troopers Hill. We return over St Anne's Ferry Bridge, St Anne's Woods, St Anne's Park, Arnos Park and Arnos Vale Cemetry, picking up the Avon Walkway again from the footbridge into Sparke Evans Park. 

There are a few bits of industrial heritage on this walk and just a few Victorian Houses, but its mainly a waterside and greenspace walk, hpefully with lots of Autumn colour. Bring drinks and pack lunch, or pick something up at Avon Meads. There will be a mixture of well finished path and pavement and uneven ground with steep bits up and down between the flat riverside walks. 

9 miles, we will need to keep a good pace to get through  Arnos Vale Cemetery before dusk. 

Dress as you would for an off road hike with good shoes or boots, warm and waterproof clothes.

    Hi Elizabeth.

    I am not sure that I can manage 9 miles! I live near to the Netham Lock, maybe I could try to meet up with the group there? Obviously timing will be a bit difficult but an approx time that the group may reach the Netham Lock would be ok.
