Views of Clevedon

The Seafront Area

Clevedon Pier (low tide)

On a typical overcast British Sunday Afternoon, Clevedon Pier from the The Beach (above). The Estuary of the River Severn has the second largest tidal range in the world (after the Bay of Fundy in Canada). These pictures were taken at low tide; compare with the picture at the head of the Clevedon Pier page to see a high tide picture. The average height difference between low and high tides is 47 feet (14.5 metres).

The Salthouse Field The Salthouse Field was an area where salt was processed from the pools left by the receeding tides. Now it is a green area where all sorts of leisure activities are undertaken. As well as the formal activities of Bowls, Tennis, Golf Putting and a childrens play area, a large grassed area, surrounded by a miniature railway, is host to a 'bouncy castle', Pony and Donkey tides, and impromptu games of football, cricket and such like, according to season, undertaken by residents and visitors alike. Here Martin, the junior member of the Eastmond Family, takes advantage of the breezes and flies his kite. The children's play area is in the background, and the Salthouse Hotel is the white building, in the right background.
