Leigh Woods

Leigh Woods are a broadleaf woodland on a plateau above the Avon Gorge in Bristol. Designated pathways (see the map below) offer the visitor relaxing walks through oak, small-leaf lime, and ash forests. The site is now managed by the National Trust.

Walking along the pathway leads the visitor to Stokeleigh Camp (see below) which was an Iron Age hill fort (dating from 350BC) that defended the crossing over the River Avon.
