Walk to Overscourt Wood

Discover breathtaking views of Bristol and the Mendips and get lost in 207 acres of new woodland and open space at this Forestry Commission woodland, which forms part of the Forest of Avon. There are a range of circular walks with commanding views, or venture off the beaten path to meander through tall grasses, stalk old hunting grounds and explore carefully planted woodland. A great place to explore, in 2019 it will be linked to Lyde Green by a waymarked route, starting here. The centre of the wood is a gentle 1¾ hour ramble away.

In the northern hemisphere moss mostly grows on the north side of trees and rocks, and spiders webs usually hang on the south side – this is a handy tip to remember if you ever get lost in the woods!
