Weston Big Wood Nature Reserve

Weston Big Wood


Weston Big Wood is a woodland which is very rich in wildlife, but what can also be found here is evidence of man’s historical activities. During spring, the wood is filled with flowers like bluebells, anemones and violets. Some birds like nuthatch, tawny owl and woodpecker have made Weston Big Wood their home because it provides everything they need.

Southern and western areas of the wood were quarried away during the 19th and 20th centuries, but now the Portishead Quarry is used for climbing. Weston Big Wood is great if you want to get away from the busy city, enjoy to see beautiful flowers or if you are interested in geology. The best time to visit the site is from April to July and from September to November, but the wood is open at all times.

There are public footpaths that run throughout the site. Access is gained through a kissing gate and steps and main access to the paths is uphill. The paths can be steep and muddy, therefore the wood is not suitable for wheelchair users or pushchairs. Dogs are allowed, but they must be kept on lead. There is a layby near the recycling centre on Valley Road. A car ride from the city centre will only take 25-30 minutes and a bus ride to the woods will take about an hour.
