Geology & Natural History Information Boards on Clevedon Seafront
Clevedon Pier and Heritage Trust are very pleased to announce the installation of three public Information Boards on Wildlife, Geology and Minerals. Each Board is supported by a more detailed account of the subject on the Piers web site which can be accessed directly by a QR code on each Board. The Boards highlight the rich landscape, geology and coastal ecology which can be viewed from the Pier and along the beach, including the Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) adjacent to the Pier’s toll house.
The Boards were generously funded by the Architectural Heritage Fund, the Geologists Association and the Russell Society and were supported by inputs from Roy Starkey and David Green (The Russell Society), Jonathan Larwood (Natural England and the Geologists’ Association’s Curry Fund) and Mark Ward (Somerset Wildlife Trust). The Geology Board features artwork by Bob Nichols. The Mineral Board was manufactured and designed by Querceus. The Wildlife and Geology Boards were designed by Emily Moran, featuring her original artwork, and manufactured by CE Signs Clevedon. North Somerset Council supported the project and installed the boards.
