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
welcome to our town.
J B Bowler of Bath
J B Bowler & Sons' were the ‘Nuts & Bolts’ men of Bath.
The firm’s final closure was forced by Bath Council's compulsory purchase of the firm's Corn Street site for a multi-storey car park. Luckily, another local businessman, Russell Frears, was so struck by the historical continuity the premises represented that he bought the entire contents of the building for £2,000 and founded the Bath Industrial Heritage Trust to preserve them.
