Welcome to FOD+AG

'Friends of the Downs and Avon Gorge'

Our aims are:

To monitor, work with and influence the Downs Committee, Bristol City Council and all those involved in the management, maintenance and improvement of the Gorge and Downs.
To protect and enhance the Downs and the Gorge for the benefit both of all its users and its wildlife.

To consult with, and represent, the views and aspirations of all users..


We run a full programme of talks, walks and events as well as volunteer programmes such as wildlife monitoring and deep litter clean-ups. We are developing projects, for example in association with UWE, a bridge over Bridge Valley Road. Our quarterly newsletter features reports on our activities, articles to inform, provoke and entertain as well as views from members.
