  • I thought this was an amazing area so close to the city. In parts it is hugely overgrown especially in the southern part where we walked along a mown path in a SSW direction only to find a huge bed...

  • Great inner-city reserve. I have walked the trail (and it’s many variations) a few times now. My eldest (11) and I are intending to do a nice walk across Alney Island to Over, where we shall reward ourselves with a carvery! My youngest (3) and I regularly walk the shortest circular route (approx. 1 mile). It was a bit under-loved on our last visit, with graffiti on a couple of signs and litter on the last stretch of path. However, the beauty of Alney Island is that it is a nature reserve in the heart of a city. Sadly, whilst not right, these things tend to happen more regularly in cities than in rural areas. There were no cows on our recent travels (Much to my son’s disappointment. Although walkers should anticipate there being so) and we parked at Castle Meads Car Park (although the walk can be accessed from numerous points).
  • A great find. Large area of beautiful natural countryside so close to the city centre. Car park is free!
