Visit Birkhill

Accessible by train, foot or cycle, Birkhill is situated in a peaceful rural setting close to the river Avon, and is a great place to spend a few hours relaxing, walking or taking in a picnic or just watching the day go by. Deer are sometimes spotted walking across the railway tracks disappearing into the fields and woods. Birds of prey and pheasants can often be heard calling out in there own earie way.

For those of you who like taking a little stroll there is  a short meadow walk, created during the Mine Museum days, details of the meadow walks can be found at the following link: Meadow Walk – 1







Late April early May is a great time to see a mass of Blue bells at the south end of the station and in the woods close by too.

The main station room is currently being transformed into a small exhibition area about the Fireclay Mine that used to operate near by and was once a visitor’s centre in its own right until 2013.
