Clevedon Pier Heritage and Trust are proud to announce their partnership with Wessex Buses!
Simon Dunn (Wessex Bus CEO):
“Wessex Bus is delighted to have become a Sponsor of Clevedon Pier. The bus industry expanded hugely after the First World War to cater for the then new activities of tourism and recreation by bus. Wessex Bus is proud to associate itself with an iconic emblem of the Victorian era which offers so much to the visitor in today's world.”
Nicole Laken (Clevedon Pier Business Manager):
“Clevedon Pier and Heritage Trust are grateful to Wessex Bus for sponsoring Britain's only Grade 1 listed Pier. Built in 1869 to accommodate the tourist industry, it is wonderful to think that visitors can still travel around the west country and get close to the amazing icons of engineering in our area. This unique structure costs in the region of £100,000 per year to maintain therefore the support of Wessex Bus is much appreciated”
