Portishead Marina

It was a nice sunny day, so we headed to Portishead to have a walk around the marina (and probably stop for a coffee).

It had been a while since we were last there, looking back across my old photographs, it was August 2020.

Though my first visit to the marina was only in July 2020. I had been to the Waitrose in the area a fair few times (before the branch in Weston opened), but had never noticed or even being to the marina area.

The original docks closed in 1992 and the area underwent regeneration. It is now very different to the power stations that dominated the area before then.

We walked up to the pier end of the marina.

On our recent trip, the sun was shining, but it wasn’t as warm as it might be with a chilly wind blowing in from the sea.

There are a really variety of boats and yachts in the marina.

We stopped for coffee and croissant at Mokoko Coffee and Bakery.

There are a few information signs around the marina which shows how it use to look in the 1970s and 1980s.
