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
Who designed the Clifton Suspension Bridge, Fact or Fiction?
The Clifton Suspension Bridge has become the most visible symbol of Bristol, City of Brunel and its design is now credited to Brunel alone. In fact, the Bridge is the achievement of Sir John Hawkshaw and WH Barlow and was built in 1864, after Brunel’s death. Its story is closely bound up with advancing knowledge about the behaviour of this most unstable type of bridge, knowledge which Hawkshaw and Barlow took full advantage of in their design.
All meetings are at
St Andrew’s Church Centre, Clevedon at 7.30pm
All are welcome, visitors £3
Leave Strode Road Car Park at 9.30am
