A new seating area has been unveiled on the site of a derelict toilet block on Clevedon seafront.

Clevedon Civic Society, the town council and North Somerset Council removed the men’s toilet block in Marine Parade, opposite Clevedon Pier, and have replaced it with new seats, plants and a sign showing directions to points of interest in the town.
