Weston, Clevedon & Portishead Railway

Gordano Civic Society, in cooperation with WC&P Railway Group and Portishead in Bloom, jointly funded a new interpretation board about the old Weston, Clevedon and Portishead Light Railway. It was installed in June 2020 replacing an old one and stands on Wyndham Way opposite the Old Mill pub.




Portishead Marina

Three Interpretation Boards were installed in 2011 alongside Portishead Marina to give information about the industrial heritage of the former docks.
