MAP of Portbury Wharf Nature Reserve


The Friends are pleased to share this new map of our wonderful nature reserve

The map, created for us by local artist Hilary Kington, illustrates and names the significant features and pathways of the reserve as well as giving a clue to the wildlife you may see. Next year the Friends will print and deliver the map to local homes in a leaflet about the reserve.

Please note this map is subject to change.
