Thursday Doors – Clevedon

While in Somerset for our son’s wedding at Walton Castle, we took a walk into the town of Clevedon and ended up on this Victorian pier. From the end, you get a great view of the town.

The restored 1869 pier Β is one of the earliest surviving examples from the Victorian era and has a Japanese pagoda with a glass restaurant, where we had a delicious hot chocolate with marshmallows to warm us up. There are some more photos of it in this slideshow.

I love the architecture in Clevedon, most of the older properties are very well preserved and cared for, from the small cottages to the imposing townhouses.

I still have a few more doors of Clevedon to post but I’ll save them until next week’s Thursday Doors. I hope you’ll join me again but in the meantime, why not have a look at what Norm has posted on his blog this week.

    The buildings are beautiful, Jean, as is the pier. The day almost looks mysterious with the overcast. I was amazed to see that the tide rises 47′ – that’s incredible. Thanks for bringing us along with your visit.

    I just love these photos — especially the shot from the end of the pier. I’d hang that in my house, so pretty. It’s so pretty there. A cottage for me, please πŸ™‚

  4. Great to have access to a place that is quite near to Ireland, yet which many Irish people probably don’t get to see.

    I used to live in Somerset and your pics made me feel very homesick – it is the loveliest county, I think… The photos of the pier are absolutely lovely – thank you!

    What a fabulous pics and what a cool place to go! Never seen anything like this (since I live in the US you do not see much Victorian architecture). I can’t imagine a 47 foot tide rise! Thanks for sharing!
