Farms, Folk and Famous People: Histories of Clevedon
with a memoir by Derek B. Lilly
In this second local history collection from the Clevedon Community Press, Jane Lilly informs, amuses and surprises her readers. Three essays feature local farms and another focuses on 1820s development in Hill Road. Folk dance and song in Clevedon is revealed as well as the work of a local pottery. The Lawn School is researched, the leader among many boarding schools here.
There is a Clevedon connection with Admiral Lord Nelson's family. Eminent writer Jan Morris, and her brothers, were born here. Their mother inaugurated the Curzon cinema organ, locally made. Derek Lilly rounds the book off with tales of his childhood between the Wars, illustrated with photographs from his brother Tom.

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.
