More About The Organisation
Willsbridge Mill,an impressively restored 19th century corn mill and adjoioning Long Barn is the Avon Wildlife Trust's environmental education centre. The Mill and Barn house a wildlife hands on exhibition including a demonstration bee hive and is the base for the centre's environmental education programme. The centre runs a range of courses and activiities from pond dipping to den building. Weekend and holiday events make full use of the nature reserve to raise an awareness and celebrate the wildlife of Willsbridge Valley. In recent years environmental art has been used as an imaginative way of interpreting the site to help target groups not normally reached. A heritage sculpture trail with innovative leaf shaped brass waymarker plaques, garden and geology trails, and event days from fundraising fairs to tree dressing festivals help to bring visitors closer to nature.
The Mill is set in Willsbridge Valley, a 22 acre nature reserve with a range of wildlife habitats
