Wapley Bushes Local Nature Reserve – a warm welcome

This area of woodlands and meadows is a haven for wildlife. Please enjoy the views and the peace and quiet. Visitors of all ages are welcome to explore the Reserve – look for secret places like the Lower Pond hidden in a copse, and the Dragon Tree on the Lower Path in the Ancient Woodland.

The Reserve is owned by Dodington Parish Council and managed in partnership with Wapley Bushes Conservation Group. The Reserve was set up in 1992.

Wapley Bushes Conservation Group holds regular workdays and always welcomes new volunteers – there is something for everyone, and it’s a very friendly group. The Conservation Group is affiliated to Avon Wildlife Trust, and can tell you about other local nature areas and volunteering opportunities.

Enjoy your visit and please come back soon.
