Walking enables you to explore your local area on foot and get to know your community.
Why not set yourself a challenge to walk in all your local parks and walking paths?
You don’t have to travel to the countryside to find a rewarding walk. Towns and cities offer interesting walks, including parks, heritage trails, canal towpaths, riverside paths, commons, woodlands, heaths and nature reserves.
Bristol is no exception to this! And Bishopston has its very own walking routes! If you fancy a very local walk then you are in luck as you will find plenty of local routes.

Walk regularly. Invest in your long-term health now and you’ll see the difference that walking can make to your mind, your body and your social life.
Using quieter streets when you’re on foot can lower your exposure to air pollution by up to 20%.
