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.

Engineering Rescue at Clevedon

Richard Fenton

Consulting Engineer Richard Fenton’s work on the Pier began when it was threatened with demolition in 1980. He outlines the long process of its restoration and compares it with the recent refurbishment of the Marine Lake, in which he was also involved.

Celtic Legacy

Jane & Derek Lilly

Derek in his very own indomitable manner will help to unfold the many Celtic symbols and tales relating to this area. 

One thing that shines through all of Derek’s talks is that one must ensure that more notice is taken when visiting areas of interest. 

One of his favourite expressions is ‘Look Up’
