Clevedon is a town in North Somerset, about 13 miles to the south west of Bristol and about 12 miles to the north east of the seaside resort of Weston-super-Mare. Clevedon was mentioned in the Domesday Book and was listed at that time as having eight villagers, and ten smallholders. The seaside town became very popular during the Victorian era when the craze for bathing in the sea was catered for by saltwater baths adjacent to the pier and bathing machines on the main beach. Today Clevedon has a population of around 22,000 residents.
Clevedon is situated on and round seven hills called Churchill, Wain's hill (which is topped by the remains of an iron age hill fort, Dial hill, Stawberry hill, Castle hill, Hangstone hill and Court Hill which is a Site of Special Scientific Interest. On a clear day there are far reaching views across the Severn estuary to Wales. When the visibility is particularly good the island of Lundy in the Bristol Channel can be seen.
Clevedon has a certain amount of light industry, mainly in industrial estates including Hither Green Trading Estate near the M5 motorway junction, and it is also a dormitory town for Bristol.Information & text gathered from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
