Purn Hill


Purn Hill is a reserve that mostly consists out of grassland and is part of the western Mendips. The hill has panoramic views across the Somerset Levels to the Blackdowns and Quantocks. Three of the plants that grow in the reserve are nationally rare or threatened. These are honewort, Somerset hair-grass and white rock rose, which is only found at two sites in the UK. This site is excellent if you enjoy stunning views.

The best time to visit Purn Hill is from April till July although the site is open at all times. There are two access points, one north (Purn Lane) and one south (Bleadon Road). There is a public footpath that runs through the site, but there are some gates to access the walkways. The steps and paths can become muddy when wet and you should be cautious of slopes throughout the site. Not suitable for wheelchair users and pushchairs. Dogs are allowed, but they should be kept on lead. Car parking is restricted. When travelling by car you should be able to reach Purn Hill in 45 minutes from the city centre. With public transport it will take about an hour. Entry to this nature reserve is free!
