Almost on our doorstep, the Lower Severn Vale Levels make up a unique 'local' landscape that has been neglected in the past but is now being actively conserved and restored.
'A Forgotten Landscape' is the name that has been given to a large-scale natural and cultural heritage project, funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund Landscape Partnership Scheme: see a forgotten landscape
Details of the up and coming events and activities associated with the project can be seen here
One of the events listed which may be of particular interest to North Bristol residents and which makes use of the local Severn Beach line is A Stroll along the Severn – part of the Festival of Nature
Wednesday 16 June 9:16 (if you come by train) – 12:32, Severn Beach
A leisurely walk along the banks of the Severn to experience this beautiful, open landscape. The train journey from Bristol is spectacular – it has been rated one of Europe’s most scenic railway journeys by Thomas Cook!
We will be catching the 9:16 train from Bristol Temple Meads which gets in at 9:53. You are welcome to meet us at Temple Meads, or join the train at one of the many stations on the route or meet us at Severn Beach station. We will be returning on the 11:54 train which gets in to Temple Meads at 12:32. The train is £3 return from Temple Meads. The walk is free! Booking is essential
