The Bitton Parish History Group, have published a series of detailed tour maps to take visitors and locals alike on a journey through local villages’ most significant historical landmarks.
The walks are self-guided, allowing individuals to take their time and explore the area at their own pace. There are separate maps for Bitton, Oldland Common and Willsbridge.
Each walk comes with an easy-to-read illustrated map that guides visitors through the historic sights of the area. The maps also include step-by-step directions, photos, and background information, making it easy for visitors to navigate the walks and learn more about the history of the villages. Accessibility details are clearly indicated on each map.
