A local community group, Let's Walk Bishopston, has researched, developed and published a series of attractive local walking maps.

Whether walking for pleasure, for health or for another purpose, these walking maps help you find your way around Bishopston via as many off-road or quieter routes as possible.

There are seven route maps and a "master map" which summarises all seven.

As you will see, each item in the series is accessibly laid out, with directions and notes about local landmarks, etc., and helpful guidance on suitability.

Published in PDF format via the links below, these maps may be viewed here or downloaded for later study. Alternatively, printed copies may be available (whilst stocks last) from Bishopston Library.

The project was supported by BCRNP (now BCRCP) and Travelwest.

Further maps are in the pipeline, including a project called "Walk Your Way To Health." This is an extension of the earlier initiative, featuring two accessible walking routes between local health centres and Southmead Hospital, and a fitness route based around Horfield Common.

This project, supported by The Doctor Jazz Charitable Fund and by North Bristol NHS Trust, is producing a map called “Let’s Walk North Bristol” with the three routes mentioned above as well as three shorter routes based on the hospital. These will be added to this page when they are available.

Rights are reserved in line with our general policy, and we are grateful to the project teams for their permission to reproduce the maps here. Queries about the maps should be emailed to .
