Watchhouse Hill

Watchhouse Hill is a 10-hectare public open space situated on the eastern edge of the village of Pill. The site runs alongside the River Avon which is bordered by mature woodland, in contrast to the landscaped area and large field which is mown as a hay meadow to provide a haven for wildlife. These areas provide a large open space for recreational activities and are popular with dog walkers, whilst two football pitches and a multi-use games area provide facilities for formal recreation.

Watchhouse Hill provides a range of habitat types from a community orchard to scrub margins and wildflower meadow.

The Friends of Watchhouse Hill carry out periodic work days throughout the year, as well as holding a number of community events such as Apple Day in the orchard and a yearly Wassail.
