Interpretation Boards


The WC&P Railway Group is erecting Interpretation Boards along the route of the railway. So far five have been erected, listed below in geographic order from Portishead southwards. More will be installed as funds are available.

The Group has always had an objective of promoting an awareness of the heritage of the railway to the general public. Before we erected these boards there had been no signage of any description over the fourteen mile length of the railway to acknowledge that the railway ever existed.

Portishead:

This board, alongside Wyndham Way opposite the Old Mill pub (formerly White Lion), was installed on 23 June 2020 and funded jointly with Portishead in Bloom and Gordano Civic Society.


This replaced an original one which was installed in October 2013.

Clevedon:

This board – erected alongside the Conservative (Constitutional) Club – was unveiled by Jemma Cooper, BBC local TV presenter, on Weds 11 June 2014. The board was part funded by a grant from Clevedon Town Council.

In addition, permission was obtained from North Somerset Council to erect signage to mark the route of the railway there by naming the footpath/lane which runs along the old track bed as ‘Colonel Stephens Way’ and two signs were installed at the same time as the board.
