Footpaths Group





The Footpaths Group endeavours to walk the designated footpaths of Clevedon every few years to ensure that they are in a good state. As well as this serious purpose, our lively and sociable group meet to walk once or twice a month in our beautiful surrounding countryside. The walks range from 3 to 5 miles and vary in difficulty. We meet at a planned point for each walk including the Strode Road Car Park (SRCP) from where we lift share to our starting point. Walks usually finish with a pub lunch.                                               

Walks are planned by members at quarterly meetings with any other matters that might arise. New members always receive a warm welcome and all members are informed of the nature of the walk and any hazards which may be encountered along the way. Walks are advertised here on the Civic Society’s website and also in the North Somerset Times, complete with the leader's telephone number.

We look forward to you walking with us.

Southern Fields Survey

Town and Coast Path Survey - 17 July

Three members took part in a Footpath Survey though the eastern and northern part of the town, the Golf Club and Coast path, determining path usage, accessability and signage.

Starting from the Barn car park, we walked past the Scout Hall and rear of the Rugby Club to access the Middle Path. At the junction we admired the mural on the wall opposite before turning left and crossing Kenn Road and down past the rear of Yeo Moor School.

Turning left, we passed through the Moor Lane underpass and down Kingston Avenue to Meadow Road and Old Street, before crossing the road via the pedestrian crossing by the Hospital and turning up the short-cut path to Highdale Avenue.

We continued our walk by going up to Old Park Road via the Cinder Path and the steep footpath through the woods having crossed Highdale Road adjacent to the School. Walking the length of Old Park Road to Kings Road, noting en route the removal of the telephone box at the junction with Esmond Grove, we continued along The Avenue and up and past the Golf Club to the junction of the paths leading down to the Coast Path, where we had a coffee break.

Going along the path to the left and descending to the Coast Path, we tune back towards the town via Lover’s Walk, then up Marine Hill to Hill Road to a well-deserved lunch at Butterflies.
