Around the Gorge

The Avon Gorge and Downs Wildlife Project, supported by the National Trust, set up activities involving over 70 local schoolchildren to explore and celebrate the natural history of the Avon Gorge.

With the help of the Avon Wildlife Trust, children from Ashton Gate and Christchurch Primary Schools created artwork which formed an enormous banner displayed on the large graffiti-covered rock above the River Avon Trail.

This was the event that launched the River Avon Trail interpretation project on 25 November 2004.
