TOPSHAM, Devon

Topsham is an attractive town on the Exe estuary, Devon, in England's Westcountry. Now part of Exeter, it nevertheless maintains a distinctive identity. Loved by its locals, and savoured by those who visit, Topsham offers river walks; wildlife; a Saturday morning market; many characterful shops, restaurants and inns; and quiet space to sit and watch the sailing boats go by. But while present-day Topsham is undoubtedly picturesque and has a rich historical heritage, it always has been a working town. Despite no longer being one of the great trading ports of Britain, it continues to have a very strong business and commercial life, with traditional maritime trades continuing alongside the modern and computerised. The site aims to support and encourage the current and future community, so that the history which awaits us may be just as interesting and rewarding.

Bowling Green Marsh Hide

News from RSPB Devon:
"We’re pleased to say that the new hide down at Bowling Green Marsh is open and ready for business! We hope you’ll come and make the most of this exciting new facility and with winter fast approaching (sorry!) there will be more and more birds arriving. We’ve already had a visit from an avocet and there’s osprey here now, so come along and see what you can see.

"We will be continuing to add interpretation and information to the structures, as they are quite basic at the minute and of course, we’d love he people of Topsham to be involved. If you’d like to run a piece on what people can get involved with then please just let me know, I’d be happy to put something together to encourage the community to be involved with the future of the reserve.
 
"Thank you very much for your patience and support throughout, we hope you will be as pleased as we are with how Bowling Green Marsh looks and look forward to welcoming you at the hide."
