Back to Festival of Nature

This event has now passed, thanks to everyone who took part!

Sunday 3 June, 1:00pm-2:30pm, Walking Festival canal walk – Free event

As part of Festival of Nature and to preview 2018’s Bathscape Walking Festival, take a walk with us from Sydney Gardens along the canal to Bathampton Mill.

We will take a stroll along the canal, seeing what wildlife we spot along the way and you can find out more about Bathscape projects.

We will arrive at Bathampton Mill in plenty of time to meet up with Avon Wildlife Trust, for those who have booked on the tour of Bathampton Meadows (see below!). For those not joining the Trust, you can walk back with us or take the boat or bus back into the centre.

Booking essential. Get your free tickets by clicking here.


Sunday 3 June, 2:30pm-4:00pm, Bathampton Meadow Nature Reserve – Free event

Join Avon Wildlife Trust’s Joe McSorley on a guided walk around Bathampton Meadow nature reserve, usually accessible by permit only. Explore the man-made wet meadows and ox-bow lake, an ideal environment for a range of dragonfly and damselfly visiting in high numbers. Enjoy the abundance of wildflowers, see if you can catch a glimpse of a sand martin or kingfisher and learn about the history of the site.

This walk has been planned to coordinate with Canal walk from Bath led by the Bathscape team (see above!) or the Pulteney Princess boat trips along the river (more information here) – so why not make a day of it and fully explore Bath’s wonderful riverside nature.

We will meet at Bathampton Mill car park, BA2 6TS, at 2.30pm, Sunday June 3. The walk will last approximately 1.5 hours.
