People are keen to help with litter picking, however we are an ageing group and are always looking for support for administration and management of the group. Not so glamorous as litter picking; it doesn’t require a lot of time, but it keeps the organisation alive. Feel free to come to a meeting or email via this site if you are interested.
We have been successful in receiving funding to undertake a three year phosphate and nitrate water sampling campaign of the Land Yeo from the motorway downstream to the outfall. As soon as the current pandemic situation allows, sampling will commence. For more info see the Christmas message note on the 2020 minutes page.
Two Rivers Walk is open, a pdf of the brochure is below. Small waymarking signs have been erected around the whole route on lampposts, gates etc. TO PROTECT THE PERMISSIONS WE HAVE FOR THE ROUTE; PLEASE STAY ON THE PUBLIC FOOTPATHS AND PERMISSIVE PATHS AND FOLLOW THE COUNTRY CODE.
PLEASE NOTE THE DRIVE CALLED “POWELLS ACRES” AT THE END OF THE STRETCH OF RIVER AFTER THE MEDICAL CENTRE IS PRIVATE LAND. THE WALK ROUTE TURNS RIGHT HERE AWAY FROM THE RIVER INTO KINGSTON AVENUE
The Two River Walk (interactive map link provides information about particular points around the walk. The pdf above provides a more reliable diagram of the actual route).

Comments on Hello Clevedon Facebook about the walk: May 2020
I walked part of the Two River path today taking a short cut home past by the Craft Centre.
We did the two rivers walk recently too, such a lovely and interesting route!
It’s such a great walk, thanks so much for the signposting.
Excuse my ignorance but where is the two river path?
