Reserve Focus: Gordano Valley NNR

David Hawkins provides an account of the rich waterways, rare plants and other wildlife highlights of the Gordano Valley, in North Somerset.

The Gordano Valley presents something of a paradox. Many readers will recognise the name from the eponymous service station and may have sped through it on the M5, as the motorway splits and rises high over the treetops on the Wynhol Viaduct. It is likely, however, that very few will have wandered the landscape below.
