25 Years as a Local Nature Reserve 1995-2020

Troopers Hill Local Nature Reserve is a hillside overlooking the River Avon that has been quarried and mined in the past.

The Hill contains a fascinating mix of history, wild plants and animals. With heather and broom, rocky crags and gullies, stunning views and two listed chimneys, Troopers Hill is one of the most spectacular wildlife spots in Bristol.

There is free unrestricted access to Troopers Hill, all day everyday and by crossing Troopers Hill Field you can get the top of the hill without any steps or steep slopes.
