Where to go blackberry picking in Bristol

After a scorcher of a summer, and then sudden downpours of torrential rain, it can only mean that Autumn is closing in, which means it’s time for foraging delicious blackberries on your dog walk in Bristol. This change of weather makes the blackberries sweet and juicy though, so it’s a great time to seek them out! Here are some places in and around Bristol where we’ve been blackberry picking on our dog walks:
