Our new homes at Brooks Dye Works are nestled in St Werburghs, a vibrant community in Bristol. During the challenging times presented through the effects of Covid-19 we wanted to share our local area guide to showcase the characterful neighbourhood, independent shops and highlight the community spirit still shines through.
Open Green Space
The area surrounding Brooks Dye Works offers plenty of open green space from Ashley Hill Allotments to the Mina Road Park and Narroways Nature Reserve.
St Werburghs City Farm
The St Werburghs City Farm is a small holding and community gardens open to visitors, enabling people growing up in the city to learn about farm animals and access to open space. Although currently closed, follow them on social channels for updates on the animals as volunteers continue to look after them.
An amazing selection of unique independent shops and eateries can be found in St Werburghs, delicious food & drink is never far and many are still offering delivery services. If you are already in the area why not take advantage of the local brews of Wiper and True, pizza at Café Napolita, Popti & Beast Butchers or curry night and more from The Cauldron.
Offering organic, local and ethical food and a cosy café the flagship Better Food store is just around the corner from Brooks Dye Works. Shopping responsibly has never been more at the forefront of everyone’s minds, check out their blog for tips on shopping responsibly here.
The area is renowned for its cool, colourful charm and stunning street art can be found throughout St Werburghs. Head towards the iconic Gloucester Road then further down to the urban street murals of Stokes Croft, there is no shortage of artwork to see.
Anyone feeling inspired and looking to make some art at home, The Children’s Scrapstore in St Werburghs have moved online and are now selling craft activity boxes – perfect for the whole family!
