On Saturday 17th February 2108, the Ramblers can celebrate the walking route through St Anne's Woods as a Public Right Of Way owned by Bristol City Council.  This medieval route between Keynsham, St Anne's Well and Barton Hill was used by packhorses and pilgrims for centuries.   This was abruptly ended when James Sinnott, a solicitor, bought the wood, put locks at one entrance and stopped the ferry boat service.


The Bristol and District Footpath Preservation Society, led by the Bishop of Bath & Wells and a committee, grappled with the problem for 6 years and won.
