A popular car boot sale that takes place near Bradley Stoke is due to re-open for the 2018 season later this month.

The weekly Trench Lane Boot Sale, held on Sundays on a farmland site opposite the entrance to Woodlands Golf Club [BS32 4JZ, map], will open for the first time this year on 15th April, subject to ground conditions.

As in previous years, the sale will open to buyers at 7am. Trading goes on until around 3pm, although the number of buyers usually drops off after midday. Sellers are charged £7 for a car or £10 for a van.

For buyers, there is an entrance charge of £1 for a car or 50p for a pedestrian. Free parking is provided in adjacent fields.

The organisers ask sellers to arrive no earlier than 6am (when the site opens), to avoid traffic queues forming on Trench Lane.

The final sale in 2018 will take place on Sunday 28th October.

UPDATE (12th April 2018): Organisers have told us that ground conditions have forced the first sale to be put back to Sunday 22nd April 2018.

UPDATE (18th April 2018): Organisers have told us that ground conditions remain poor (despite the improving weather), so the first sale has been put back again to Sunday 29th April 2018.
