Explore Paradise Bottom
(Average user rating: unrated unrated)

Pond at Paradise Bottom, Leigh Woods

Designed by 18th Century landscape designer, Humphry Repton. There are many features including the ornamental gardens, known as the 'pleasure grounds' which have been restored by the Forestry Commission with funding by the Heritage Lottery Fund and Countryside Agency.

 

You can sit inside 'A Seat with a View' and take in the stunning view across the Avon Gorge, find an example of the tallest tree in the world (the Giant Redwood) and see the unusual Fulham Oak which retains it's leaves all year around.

Two very old pollarded lime trees can be found by the pond which enhance the eyecatching views down the valley.
