Fifty years ago this month ………

What happened on the day that Clevedon Pier collapsed ….

Disaster struck Clevedon Pier at 10.20 on the morning of Friday, 16th October 1970 – 50 years ago – when under load testing for insurance purposes, the southern side seventh trestle failed causing the seventh and eight spans to fall into the sea, leaving the Pierhead as an island. Click here to find out what local people felt at the time – you might be surprised.
What can visitors to the Pier actually see?
To mark the 50 years of community effort since the collapse, the Pier has arranged for 12 historical posters to be printed.
These allow visitors to the Pier to read about what happened on the day and the town’s efforts to rebuild The Pier. As our museum is closed, these will be displayed outside on the lower windows of the pagoda, with gaps between the panels to ensure social distancing.
Between October 16 and October 19, the model of The Pier used in the Public inquiry in 1980 will be on display in our Glass Box space.
Also on the day of the anniversary, at 2pm, we will be unveiling a special plaque to mark our survival.

Amateur film footage taken by Ralph Fryer on the day the Pier collapsed. Ralph heard about the collapse whilst working in the Walton area. “I dashed home and collected my movie camera, came back and took this film.” Later in the day Ralph took his boat out and circled the broken spans capturing unique images of the stricken Pier.
