One Foot in the Past: Clevedon Pier, Free Open Evening

Free entrance to the Pier.


Clevedon Pier is the only Grade I Listed pier intact in the country. It is beautiful slender structure a located on the North Somerset Coast, a much-loved local icon with immense heritage importance. Opened to the public in 1869 the pier consists of a promenade stretching into the sea, built using old Barlow railway lines from Brunel’s Great Western Railway broad gauge. It was rescued by the Clevedon Pier and Heritage Trust following a Public Inquiry resulting from its partial collapse under a load test in 1971.

    Sorry. I am no longer available to meet up on this event. But I did go recently, it's great. I liked all the plaques...especially the one about the dog and postman....look out for it!

    Wayne. Is the telescope still working for inland shots and will you be wearing your Charity shop outfit again at this event this year? I especially liked the old trousers

      I have warned everyone with a sea view to draw the curtains. Regrettably Old Trousers has seen better days.

  • Dawn T.

    Meant to say....going from Bath. I'd love to have a lift with someone possible but equally could give a lift.

    Hi, I went to Clevedon just last weekend. Loved it! The pier has plaques all the way along not just 'in memory of' but celebrating achievements and milestones too. Really fun some of them!
