Interpretation Points, Benches and Toposcopes

We have plans for some amazing landscape interpretation across the area, with interpretation points, benches and toposcopes.

We have been working hard with local landowners and communities to identify locations so why not explore our map below?

Interpretation points are marked in green, benches are blue and toposcopes are orange.

Design of Interpretation

At eleven sites across the project area, a cluster of posts with enamel tops will show information, images and stories about the landscape around them.


Two bench designs inspired by apple orchards, shorelines, features of Avonmouth and the docks are being created for the project area. Based on a classic Victorian bench, the ornate cast iron ends will support slats of wood for the seat. A short quote from oral histories gathered by AFL volunteers will be attached in a brass plaque on the top, and an image or pattern of a local feature will be drawn with pyrogravure onto the wood.

See the slide show below for some in progress photographs of the benches.
