'We were entranced!

Audience response to Clifton Story-Walk 2023

Highwaymen, colliers and loo ladies; legionnaires, suffragettes and Cavaliers; gibbets, turnpikes and flying machines: all have played their part in the history of Durdham Down. Join writer Clare Reddaway for a stroll through the past as she creates stories from the rocks and the turf beneath your feet. 

Clare is delighted to have been commissioned by the Avon Gorge and Downs Wildlife project to create a brand new story walk, roaming over the glorious Downs. She brought her new walk to Durdham Down for the Bristol Walk Fest in May, and it was a resounding success: 

'Just wanted to say how fantastic this was yesterday.

So interesting, different, acted, tailored and the sun too! What a find [Clare] is.'

Clare will be leading the walk again in October. The walk is a touch over 1 3/4 hours. It begins and ends at the entrance to Bristol Zoo (BS8 3HH). There is one short steep climb, on the path up to the Downs from the Zoo, and the walk is on uneven, possibly wet ground so do wear sturdy shoes. Expect spectacular views! 


Booking will open soon for the walk in October.  Tickets £10
