Architecture and history alive in Somerset

Architecture and history alive in Somerset

Clevedon is a small parish town situated in Somerset. The town is located on and around a series of seven hills, including Dia Hill, Strawberry Hill and Castle Hill. It is a seaside town on the Somerset coast, which also offers a splendid backdrop of Victorian architecture.

For those looking for property to buy in Clevedon who love the countryside, Clevedon offers some spectacular views. From Court Hill, a designated site of special specific interest, on a clear day, it is possible to see across the Severn Estuary to parts of Wales, as well as the isle of Lundy in the Bristol Channel.

Clevedon has its own pier, interesting in its own right, as it was built in 1869, and is one of the oldest examples of a Victorian style pier still in existence in England, and the oldest intact pier from its time. From the pier, those looking to indulge in a little bit of history can jump aboard the paddle steamer Waverley, the oldest paddle steamer still in operation in the UK. Built in 1946, the boat was originally used in Scotland on the Firth of Clyde. However, it now offers short trips from Clevedon to various locations on the Bristol Channel.

And if history really is paramount for people looking to move to Clevedon, the town has another impressive record breaking landmark. The Curzon cinema, which is still in operation, is the oldest continually used cinema in the world.

Schools in the area are also good for those with families looking to move to Clevedon. The Clevedon School is a large secondary school which hosts 1,200 students from the town and surrounding rural areas. It is also a centre of excellence for modern languages, having gained its Language College status. The town is also served by six different junior and primary schools.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801218097-ADNFCR
