A mother-of-two has produced an illustrated guide to Portishead.

The map shows illustrations of landmarks and attractions like Battery Point, Black Nore Lighthouse, the lido and Portbury What Nature Reserve and is the work of creative director Sarah Richards.

She launched her own business in Portishead earlier in the year creating prints of her favourite places in Portishead and undertaking commissions for bespoke artworks.

However, the map is not a commercial venture – Sarah decided she wanted to use it to help promote the town.

She said: “I love Portishead and all within it, so creating this illustrated guide was a labour of love for me.

“It’s free to anyone who wants one and can be obtained from a number of local shops and from Goodman & Lilley estate agents in Portishead High Street.

“It can also be downloaded from Visit Portishead.”
