Walton Common

About

Walton Common is a scrub and woodland renowned for wildflowers and butterflies. There are some stunning views of the Gordano Valley that can be seen from here.

The wildflowers that can be found on Walton Common are: rock-rose, violets, St John’s wort, thyme and autumn gentian. In the area at least 7 different kinds of butterflies can be found as well as other animals like glow-worms, grasshoppers and moths. The scrub and woodland edge provide food and nest-sites for blackcap and whitethroat. Buzzard, kestrel and sparrow hawk can be seen hunting across the Common.

This site is great for getting away from the busy city, to enjoy excellent views and watch the flowers and butterflies in the area. The best time to visit the site is from April till August and is open at all times. There is a public footpath that runs through the site, but they can be steep. They can become slippery when wet and are not suitable for wheelchair users and pushchairs.

Dogs are allowed, but must be kept on lead. When travelling by car it will take almost 30 minutes to get to Walton Common from the city centre. A bus ride will bring you there in an hour. Entry to this nature reserve is free of charge!

The above times should be used as an indicator during the recovery phase from the global pandemic.
