Milbury Heath is a hamlet in South Gloucestershire, England, located east of Thornbury. The hamlet has a garden centre and a few other farm shops. The heath is a local high point (109m asl at grid reference ST666902) and offers views west across the Severn Vale, and north into the Vale of Berkeley. A seat at the viewpoint commemorates the centenary of Falfield Parish Council in 1994. The hamlet has a former (Methodist?) chapel now converted to a private house, and a duck-pond.
Robin killing controversy
The garden centre at Milbury Heath has come under fire due the treatment of robins who were nesting there and were sometimes flying in the cafeteria section. They were killed after getting permission from DEFRA. This sparked controversy among many groups, including the RSPCA. The garden centre defended the killings by claiming they were "a pest" and a "health hazard".
