A detailed model of Clevedon Pier has been created for the venue’s visitor centre.
Apprentices at engineering company SKF UK’s Clevedon branch, based in Strode Road, designed a miniature collapsible version of the Grade I-listed pier which can be viewed in the interactive exhibition in the pier’s toll house.
An SKF spokesman said: “When we were approached by the Trust to create a model of the pier that was to be displayed in the new visitor centre, we jumped at the chance.
“It is a fantastic opportunity to showcase the engineering skills our apprentices have gained during their studies.”
Clevedon Pier and Heritage Trust business manager, Nicole Laken, added: “We are delighted with the finished result and truly grateful to SKF for its support.
