Welcome

So what’s a green map then? Well, it’s about everyday choices: small ways to help the planet. Things like recycling,

transport, renewable energy, local and organic food. It’s also about what’s special in your everyday surroundings.

Maybe some piece of nature you pass by every day, which suddenly gets interesting when you begin to look. Green

mapping began in 1995, and now there are more than 250 maps published around the world. They share a special

set of icons called the Green Map System. We hope you enjoy this map!

Easton colliery was sunk to a depth of 1,920 feet, the deepest in the country at one time.

If you stood round here 300 million years ago you’d likely

be up to your knees in a tropical swamp, surrounded

by strange giant ferns and horsetails the size of mature

trees. During this time, Bristol lay close to the equator. It

was part of an enormous river delta, like today’s Amazon.

When the giant ferns and horsetails died, they were buried

by sediments, which over time pressed the plant material

together to form the coal of the Bristol Coalfield.

Troopers Hill is famous for its bees. There is a “mining”

bee, which digs burrows in patches of bare earth.

There is also a “cuckoo” bee, which lays its eggs in

the burrows of the mining bee, only discovered here in

2000. This bee is listed in the Red Data Book I, a list of

species in danger of extinction in the UK.

When you walk around

the city, have a look at

the plants around you.

Our urban environment is

full of useful, edible and

medicinal plants such as

Ribwort Plantain. Its seeds

are a favourite

of seed-eating

birds. It has

been used as

a herbal remedy

for stings, bites

and cuts and

produces

gold and

brown

dyes.
