Overview

A 4.5 mile walk around Ashton Court estate taking in woodland and grassland and including a walk through the Deer Park which is home to a herd of Red Deer, Britain’s largest land mammal.  There will be mud and slippery spots in places so bring sticks if you need them.

A bit of a climb to start with but worth it when you get to the top with amazing views over Bristol.  After that it is all flat or downhill.  There are toilets and a café at the top serving hot drinks, cakes and other snacks, so we can stop for a quick break – or you can bring your own.
