Officially, Nailsea and Backwell station, as it is in-between the two towns. It is only 20 minutes from Weston and that includes three stops. Quite a regular service, every 20 minutes or so, and despite press coverage about the poor service given by British Rail, personally, never had a problem. Always on time, never crowded, clean and never been refused permission to take the bike on board. Being the holder of a senior railcard (cost £30 a year) there is a benefit of 30% off fares which over 12 months more than pays for the card.
As promised, there was a cup of tea and a raisin muffin waiting for me at my daughter's. Much appreciated. Wasn't too cold at all, the plan was working with the wind from behind or over the shoulder so there was no need to warm up at all. Caught up on the family gossip then off again but couldn't leave Clevedon without a photo of the iconic Victorian Pier.
A small hamlet of just over 300 people, it is halfway between Clevedon and Yatton. An ideal cycle route between the two with very quiet country lanes. There were severe floods here in 1607 and the place was under 5 feet of water for days. The sea defences have been strengthened since then thank goodness. The photo is of the village centre, not exactly a hive of activity, the bus shelter has the Parish Council information and the letter box is a Edward 7th model (The playboy king, his mum Victoria was not amused, who reigned 1901 to 1910. ) Not too many of these letterboxes about today.
