Troopers Hill Local Nature Reserve
Interpretation Boards

Friends of Troopers Hill


There are currently five interpretation boards on the site.

Thanks to National Lottery players our fifth board describing the fungi on the hill was installed in July 2019 as part of our Ways to Nature Project.

Where there are maps on these boards they are drawn so that they are the right way up for people looking at the boards. The 'QR' code on the bottom right will take you directly to our website for Mobiles

All the boards are designed by Clare Challice of Inkwood Design; the wildlife illustrations were drawn by Abi Stubbs and the boards were supplied by Arien Signs

The design and installation of the three boards installed in 2012 was funded as part of our Stepping Forward Project. The Geology board was jointly funded by Bristol City Council, as part of a project to help promote greater enjoyment and understanding of Bristol's Local Nature Reserves, and The Geologists' Association through their 'Curry Fund'.

There are also four 'Welcome to Troopers Hill' signs at entrances around the Hill, three of these were installed in 2009, and the final one in 2019. These replaced signs originally installed in 2004 and fixed to the fences.

Original 2007 Board

The board by the upper chimney is an update of the board installed in 2007 (photos below) which was funded by Bristol Parks with additional funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund through the Nature in the City Project. The illustrations were jointly funded by Friends of Troopers Hill as part of the leaflet design for our Breathing Places Project and Nature in the City. The same illustrations were then able to be used on both the leaflets; the board and this website.


Welcome Signs

A new welcoming sign to the site on Troopers Hill Road was installed installed at the end of August 2019 as part of our Ways to Nature Project.

Three entrance signs were funded by YANSEC in 2009. The design of these three signs was agreed between Bristol Parks and Friends of Troopers Hill.
