A new noticeboard pinpointing various landmarks has been installed at a viewpoint in Backwell, thanks to a generous donation from Nailsea Lions Club.

The board was installed at the top of Badgers Wood, in Backwell, by volunteers from Backwell Environment Trust (BET).

From the viewpoint, you can see for almost 40 miles over the Bristol Channel and the Welsh Hills. Flat Holm, Steep Holm and the Principality Stadium in Cardiff are among the landmarks which can be spotted.

President of the Lions, Pam Hunt, said: “The Lions are delighted to have been able to help the Trust with this project, and I am sure the new board will be much appreciated by the many visitors to this beautiful spot."

The new sign will complement existing boards which explain the history and ecology of the wood, which is managed by BET.
