Notice of essential maintenance

South Gloucestershire Council will be carrying out essential maintenance during the Spring and Summer months. Work includes cutting dead wood from the pine trees, assessing ash dieback, strimming brambles and felling carefully selected oak trees to reduce overcrowding. We're hoping the works doesn't cause too much disruption, therefore please continue to visit the park 

About the park

  • This open space can be accessed from Lincombe Barn car park off Rockland Road. 

  • The Park runs down to the river Frome with footpaths running north and south along the river. The path to south exits at Frenchay Bridge where you can carry on to the Oldbury Court Estate and Snuff Mills.

  • The Friends Group help to manage the park (e-mail contact lincombeparkwoods@hotmail.co.uk) and always welcome new members.

  • We have held dawn chorus and bat walks, birds of prey talks, a popular talk from Secret World about rescued badgers and a couple of fungus forays. Each year we hold an Autumn Clean and a Spring Clean and also regularly trim brambles and keep the main paths clear.

  • We are working on access issues and have had a new path put in to get down to the path which runs along side the river. We have high hopes of further access work. We have also installed 3 seats and 3 new habitat boards last year.

  • We have a Management Plan produced for the woods, giving guidance for future maintenance of the area to enhance it for the benefit of wildlife and local people.

  • The Mud Pie Explorers, a fun environment group for children, meets in the woods once a month. For further information, contact Nickie via the website www.mud-pies.co.uk.  

  • Five years hard work and patience was finally realised when the official opening of the Jubilee Walkway through the woods to Frenchay Bridge took place.  The work was funded by South Gloucestershire Council and Downend & Bromley Heath Parish Council.
