Lawrence Weston Moor

Get directions

Lawrence Weston Moor is a nature reserve with fields made up of wet and dry wildflower meadows. This hidden gem is located behind the allotments at Lawrence Weston and next to the M5. Despite being able to hear the motorway, it’s a lovely diverse walk as the area used to be marshland.

To access the walk, park on Lawrence Weston Road where it meets Atwood Drive, the nature reserve is located behind the allotments. From here, there is a great circular path signposted that takes about 45 minutes to walk (approx 2km).

The fields are full of grasses and wildflowers (so be wary of ticks), there’s even a pond if your dog loves a swim (just make sure they can get in and out as there’s a ledge).

Paws for thought

There were no bins at the nature reserve, but two are located on Lawrence Weston Road, just outside St Bede's Catholic College.
