There are two salt marshes in Portishead, one at Portbury Wharf and the other at Battery Point. These are Sites of Special Scientific Interest so are important conservation areas.
As many people do not know what a gem we have on our doorsteps we set up an Instagram page to spread the word. So we are sharing the art, science, wildlife and beauty of these salt marshes on Instagram. If you are an Instagrammer please follow us.
If not there is no need to feel left out as we are displaying the page here. So you can also follow and see what happens here throughout the year.
The reserve lies between Portishead and Royal Portbury Dock.
Access points are from Wharf Lane in Sheepway just off Junction 19 of the M5 motorway and from Portishead marina.
