Clevedon Community Press are proud to announce their second publication: Clevedon Cuttings: history, houses and a couple of characters by Jane Lilly.

Clevedon Cuttings will be launched in the Community Bookshop, Copse Road, Clevedon, on 18 November and, from 2.00pm, Jane Lilly will be giving a short talk and signing copies. All welcome!


We are proud to publish the tenth local history book by Jane Lilly, Clevedon’s well-respected local historian. Clevedon Cuttings presents meticulous historical research of places, events and people in Clevedon. Two introductory essays trace the development of the town as it grew to become a select seaside resort. Seven essays focus on Clevedon’s historical houses, their developers and occupants. Two more explore the histories of well-known businesses in the town, and two tell us of significant Clevedon characters. Clevedon’s railway accident in 1881, and the history of sea-bathing, complete this most charming collection of essays fully illustrated with photographs and specially commissioned pen & ink drawings. 

From 18 November, Clevedon Cuttings will be for sale at the Community Bookshop in Copse Road, Clevedon, and at other outlets in Clevedon, Books on the Hill, the Pier Shop and the Post Office in Old Church Road. It will be available online from the Clevedon Community Bookshop, through Amazon, Abe and Biblio.

ISBN: 978-0-9935666-1-5. RRP: £6.00. Publication date: 18 November 2017

Welcome to Clevedon Community Bookshop. This an exciting community enterprise in Clevedon. For 14 years a small second-hand bookshop existed in Copse Road, Clevedon. The new shop is the original shop plus the one next door, enabling us to double the area. We bought 7,000 books to sell in the newly refurbished shop and started trading on the 31 December 2011.

The shop is now owned and run by people in the Clevedon area and by others committed to our objectives. We receive and sell good donated second-hand books, we also sell some new books. Our range of other items for sale include cards, gift vouchers, book-markers and cloth bags.
Other activities are hosted in the shop such as; literary events, story reading for children, creative writing courses, poetry reading sessions.
