Somerset Coast Path

Somerset Coast Path

Somerset Coast Path

by: Damian Hall
Exmoor's soaring, pony-dotted plateaus; otherworldly rock formations; plunging sea cliffs; the bulbous Quantocks; bird-crowded lowlands of international importance; gracefully fading Victorian-era seaside resorts; remote bays and fossil-packed beaches; wind-bothered sand dunes; big views; melodramatic moorlands; landscapes soaked in the mythology of King Arthur and Alfred, which directly inspired the Romantic poets; intriguing (and dark) maritime history; extravagantly snaking rivers; lighthouses on legs…
One day soon the Somerset Coast Path, from the heart of Bristol to Lynton and Lynmouth, will form part of the planned England Coast Path. Much of it is already in place, and it's an eventful dramatic walk. Damian Hall's guide celebrates the landscape, towns and villages along the way, and introduces you to the history and wildlife that enrich this beautiful part of the country.
The guide includes full colour Ordnance Survey Explorer mapping for the entire route plus GPS references. The route is described in ten sections with clear instructions to guide you safely along. Background information is provided on everything from archaeology and history to wild flowers and wildlife and the book is lavishly illustrated with colour photography throughout. The book begins with a fascinating introduction to the region and tips on planning and at the end there is a section of useful practical information.
