Lawrence Weston Moor


Lawrence Weston Moor consists of an extensive network of wet meadows and reed beds and is extremely rich in wildlife.

The drier fields are home to plants such as meadowsweet and pepper saxifrage, and they are one of the few local places where common meadow rue can still be seen. The wetter meadows have more damp-loving plants, including ragged robin, marsh marigold and creeping forget-me-not.

The plants and reeds in the meadow are of high importance to birds like reed buntings and snipe, also reed and sedge warblers are known to breed in the area. By the end of the summer the drier fields are cut for hay. There are other animals known to live in the area such as frogs and insects, even water voles have been seen here.

The best time to visit the meadows is from March till August and is open at all times. There is no formal path that runs through the site and it can get very wet, so please check before travelling. Dogs are allowed, but must be kept on lead. There is no parking on site, but you can park near the social club on Lawrence Weston Road. When travelling by car it will take approximately 25 minutes from the city centre to reach Lawrence Weston Moor. Using public transport it takes about an hour. Entry to this nature reserve is free of charge!
