A Peerless Pier

Local Learning is very excited to be venturing out beyond Bristol into North Somerset, celebrating the only pier in the country to have Grade 1 Listed Building status.

We are delighted to be working with Year 4 pupils from St Nicholas’ Chantry Primary School and Masters Architecture students from the University of the West of England exploring the heritage of what John Betjeman described as ‘the most beautiful pier in England’, Clevedon Pier.

With Heritage Schools funding from Historic England, we will be collaborating with Clevedon Pier & Heritage Trust and Clevedon Learning Trust to produce a learning resource exploring the heritage of Clevedon Pier and co-creating a presentation and final exhibition to support and promote Clevedon Pier’s unique status.

The Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Act of Parliament 1990 was introduced to protect the country’s most important heritage, which must be of historic and/or architectural significance.

We will be sharing memories about Clevedon Pier at an event in November 2021 as a way of demonstrating its significance as a heritage asset to the local community and beyond. If you have stories to share and would like to be involved then do get in touch.
