The Bathscape area is the stunning green landscape surrounding the city of Bath. Restoring and conserving it for the future is now a key aim of the Bathscape Scheme. We want to look after it and make sure it’s enjoyed by many more generations to come.

A unique area of outstanding natural beauty, with its hills, valleys, grasslands and woodlands, it has a close cultural connection with Bath and its people, one we want to help make even stronger. The Bathscape area’s rich history and heritage, its amazing geology and wildlife needs us all to take care of it.

Through 25 projects to be completed in our first five years we aim to do just that. We are improving the management of 80 hectares of woodland, 100 grasslands and 30 important viewpoints. We’re creating 12 new flower-rich meadows and surveying 10 archaeological sites. And it’s just the beginning of our restoration activities.

To succeed in our aims we depend on the support of a team of 800 local volunteers. So if you want to help us to restore and take care of the Bathscape area then please do get in touch via our volunteering page. We offer some great opportunities.

We also offer owners of woodland or meadows within the Bathscape area free advice on its management and making it more wildlife friendly. Small grants may also be available to facilitate work. To learn more about our advisory services and small grants please email
