Limebreach Wood (sometimes written as Lime Breach Wood) is a woodland on the south side of the Tickenham Ridge, between Clevedon and Bristol. It is very close to the site of Cadbury Camp.[1]

It is an ancient woodland,[2] with a high proportion of Small-leaved Lime trees. The mushroom-forming fungi Limacella ochraceolutea is found in the wood.[3]

Part of the wood is managed as a nature reserve by Avon Wildlife Trust.

The pyralid moth Salebriopsis albicilla occurs here.[4]
