What is ‘Trout in the Trym’ About?

Trout in the Trym is a project to improve the ecology of the Trym rivers system in north Bristol.

Over the last few years various groups have been clearing flytipping, litter and Himalayan Balsam from the Trym and its main tributary Hazel Brook. While the odd trout has been spotted, we aim to create a much better habitat for all sorts of wildlife along the river.

In this picture there are the two bridges over the Trym, the A4 portway from Cumberland Basin in Bristol to Avonmouth and the railway line from Temple Meads to Severn Beach.

Serious work to clear the River of rubbish started in July 2018 when the section of the river from the Avon to edge of the Blaise Estate was cleared. About 3 tonnes of rubbish were removed.
