A Land Yeo Friends member has painted a glorious picture of the Land Yeo and would like to sell it with all proceeds going to the group. Below is a recent press article giving details of the picture and his contact details.
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. Sampling has commenced and a graph of results so far is on the news 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
TWO RIVERS WALK (Amended May 2020)

Nice blog describing the walk with pictures:
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?

Donations are always welcomed from people interested in helping with our continuing

Whilst I appreceate the work you have done I and my neighbours are deeply concerned over the ever decreacing level of the the Land Yeo.We live in Yeo way and our houses back on to the river .Over the past 2-3 years the river level has dropped increasingly year on year, I have photos of the different river levels and whilst I understand it drops slightly in the winter ,the evidence is apparent on the river bank to previous levels.The banks are now frequently collapsing and the bottom is clearly visible.The levels are at least 18″ lower than they were3 years ago.
Whilst I have had a conversation with Stewart Edwards regarding this I do not feel that your organisation were too concerned over the levels.Your brochure picture distributed to all households shows the river level as it used to be, a far cry from todays level ,
You say you wish to maintain river levels ,what are you doing to promote a higher level or are you just accepting the levels set at the outlet and tilting weir at Cooks Clyse.The river has been dropped and we are not happy about it,if it carries on the way it is going we will be left with nothing more than a stream.
Thanks Nick Lester 12 Yeo Way Clevedon
