Clevedon is a seaside resort on the Bristol Channel with easy access from the M5 at Junction 20.

Our attractive town, which has a population of about 21,000, is a vibrant mix of the old and the new, with a good selection of shops for all tastes and a wide assortment of excellent restaurants to relish.

Fantastic views are to be had across the water to South Wales along with interesting walks and one of the most famous sunsets in the country.

This all goes to making Clevedon a special place to enjoy, so  

welcome to our town.

This book of six engravings of Clevedon was recently presented to the Civic Society History Group by an un-named correspondent from Surrey, who found the book whilst clearing out a house. We thank that person for the gift.

The book was published in the town by A.R. Ransford of the Royal Library in Hill Road.
