CLEVEDON PIER 150: Prices board from 1940s to go on display
- Credit: Clevedon Pier Archive Team
A ‘lovely’ old notice board showcasing the prices to enter Clevedon Pier will feature in the 150th birthday archives later this month.
The notice board, which appears to be made from a cut down garden gate, has been hand-painted green with white lettering showing the charges for entry onto the pier.
It not only includes the day and season ticket prices for adults and children but also a reviewed costing if someone wanted to take their dog, bike or motorcycle along for the trip.
It also listed the price for the steamer, which docked at the end of the pier.
The piece was donated by R Gregory to the collection and is from the 1940s.

A pier spokesman said: “This lovely old notice board is from a time when cars and bicycles were allowed on the pier and dogs were charged as well as their owners.
“After the collapse in 1970, we became more discerning about allowing heavy vehicles on the pier and nowadays most things with four legs are welcome.”
