Conserving the Devonshire Avon from source to sea

Avon Salt Marsh Study

In 2005, WS Atkins Ltd., was commissioned by the South Devon AONB to conduct a ‘baseline study’ of the salt marshes in the Avon estuary.  The report is included here – Avon Salt Marsh Report_FINAL.

Unfortunately, the maps which form a key part of the report were included as separate  files which need to be accessed individually.  They include an overview zone map, maps of the the three areas of salt marsh, designated Unit s 1, 2, & 3 – Overview Zone Map_Fig 1, Unit 1_Zonation_Fig 2, Unit 2_Zonation_Fig 3, Unit 3_Zonation_Fig 4 together with a map to show the location of transects  Overview transect waypoint map_Fig 5 and  quadrats Overview Quadrat Map_Fig 6.  The precise location of the transects and quadrat sites will be important for any follow-up studies.
