Northern Slopes

Northern Slopes is a Local Nature Reserve in South Bristol divided up into 4 different areas. The areas vary from each other – some are suitable for dogs, whereas, other places are not recommended. The 4 areas are – The Novers, Kingswear, Glyn Vale and Wedmore Vale (The Bommie).

The Novers – small walk up steep steps with amazing views of Bristol from a steep wild meadow.

Glyn Vale – unfortunately, not recommended for dog walking as the area has been fly-tipped extensively and there is broken glass on the paved paths. There is a pony field in the corner.

Wedmore Vale (The Bommie) – a small but lovely walk which your dog will love. When entering from Wedmore Vale, there is a small woodland with a stream running through (lots of good doggy smells!), follow the path through the trees and you will come to the base of a steep hill. The hill is worth the climb with spectacular views across Bristol.

Despite the best efforts of the community, sometimes litter is in the area
