The Feeder Canal Sand Martin Colony

Visible from the River Avon trail pathway, running along the bottom of the park, is The Feeder Canal Sand Martin Colony. Contained in a disused shipping container, the camouflaged metal box provides a habitat for this protected migratory bird species. The fully functioning Sand martin roost was created by artist Tue Greenfort in collaboration with Bristol City Council in 2012. Source: https://discoversevernbeachline.co.uk/map/lawrence-hill

Bristol Hindu Temple

The Bristol Hindu Temple, the only one in Bristol, is housed in a converted old church building. It is a place for worship, social gathering and celebrating cultural activities of the Hindu Faith. It was founded in 1979 by members of the Bristol Hindu community who mainly constituted Hindus from East African countries including Uganda and Kenya who came to Bristol in 1972 as a result of unrest there. DID YOU KNOW? You can take a guided tour of the Temple and learn about the many Hindu Gods. You’ll need to book an appointment with The Panditji (priest). Students and school visits are welcome.
