Nature All Around You - The Avon River

Nature is all around Somerbrook. The River Avon, home to kingfishers, egrets and trout, meanders lazily around the eastern edge of the development. Deer can often be seen in the open fields surrounding the community.

Anglers can try their luck in the River Avon, where the mayfly season each May gets the trout biting, or at the beautiful Great Somerford Lakes, where members can fish three splendid former quarries for carp, tench and roach.

The Local Area

The development borders the thriving village of Great Somerford, first recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086.

Cycle paths from Somerbrook into the village lead to the popular primary school, the busy village shop and Post Office and

the handsome 19th century Volunteer Inn, which is owned by Wiltshire brewer Arkell's. The village also boasts the beautiful 12th century Grade I listed Church of St Peter and St Paul, a lively community hub that welcomes worshippers and non worshippers to a wide range of events.

The village is the home of Britain's first allotments - given to the parish by King George III in 1809.

The whole village comes together each August for the Somerford Show. This colourful celebration of country life that

is now in its 125th year, includes horses, flowers, dogs and good food. Twice a year, in July and October, top class horse riders compete at the Dauntsey Park Horse Trials on the edge of the village.

All around Somerbrook there are family days out to enjoy. Just 11 miles down the road at the stunning Cotswold Water Park

you can stroll around 170 lakes made from former gravel pits.

The park is a haven for wildlife with more than 20,000 wintering waterbirds and 21,000 gulls making their way there every year. The lakes are also home to hordesof breeding warblers, nightingales and plovers plus otters, voles and shrews, while

the fertile meadows are perfect for bees, butterflies and rare orchids.

The park is also a vibrant hub for watersports including kayaking, waterskiing, canoeing, inflatable rides and swimming. The Cotswold Country Park and Beach even has its own stretch of golden sand for sunny days.
