Published April 2, 2016 on the Badock’s Wood blog
Click HERE to read the article.

NOTE [from the Friends of Badock’s Wood website]:   Badock’s Wood covers an area of approximately 10 hectares. It is a small, semi-natural, broad-leaved woodland situated in a limestone valley (with adjacent areas of grassland) in the north-west of Bristol, between Henleaze and Southmead. It therefore provides a wildlife haven in an urban setting. To the north of the site, in an area of open grassland, is a Bronze Age burial mound (tumulus). The latter has been classified as “Middle Bronze Age, constructed about 1300 BC” and is sometimes referred to as the “Southmead Round Barrow.”

The site has been in the care of Bristol City Council since 1937, when it was given to the City by a local industrialist, as an area of open space for the enjoyment of local people. The local industrialist was Sir Stanley Badock, hence the adoption of the name “Badock’s Wood” for the site. He died in 1945.
