A popular car boot sale that takes place near Bradley Stoke will reopen for the 2024 season on Sunday 12th May, organisers have told the Journal.

The weekly Trench Lane Boot Sale, is held on Sundays on a farmland site opposite the entrance to Woodlands Golf Club [BS32 4JZ, map].

The new season was due to commence at the beginning of April but has been delayed due to the field being too wet after one of the wettest winters on record.

The fields at the site are being mown today (Saturday 11th) in preparation for Sunday’s reopening.

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.

Kitchen & Laundry Appliance Care, Bradley Stoke, Bristol.

Sellers are asked to have payment ready when entering the site.

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).


The final sale this year will take place on Sunday 27th October 2024.

N.B. The event takes place on Sundays only (never on a bank holiday Monday).
