Troopers Hill Local Nature Reserve
Interpretation Boards

Friends of Troopers Hill


There are now four interpretation boards on the site including a new (December 2016) Geology interpretation board.

The maps on these boards are drawn so that they are the right way up for people looking at the boards. The 'QR' code on the bottom right will take you directly to our website for Mobiles

All the boards are designed by Clare Challice of Inkwood Design; the wildlife illustrations were drawn by Abi Stubbs and the boards were supplied by Arien Signs

The design and installation of the three boards installed in 2012 was funded as part of our Stepping Forward Project. The Geology board was jointly funded by Bristol City Council, as part of a project to help promote greater enjoyment and understanding of Bristol's Local Nature Reserves, and The Geologists' Association through their 'Curry Fund'.

Original 2007 Board

The board by the upper chimney is an update of the board installed in 2007 (photos below) which was funded by Bristol Parks with additional funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund through the Nature in the City Project. The illustrations were jointly funded by Friends of Troopers Hill as part of the leaflet design for our Breathing Places Project and Nature in the City. The same illustrations were then able to be used on both the leaflets; the board and this website.
