West Somerset Coast

West Somerset Coast
Brean to Porlock
a journey

...“Rosie and I arrived on a sun-filled September day. It had been a wet summer and the heather had luxuriated in it. Now, the warm moorland was covered in a drift of purple heath and flashes of yellow gorse, the Bristol Channel had on her very best ‘smooth clear blue’. The air smelt of honey.”...

The book journeys from Brean Down, the peninsula just south of Weston-super-Mare, to as far as the Somerset and Devon border, a few miles west of Porlock. This is a beautiful, varied, slightly secret coastline taking in the wide sandy beaches of Brean and Berrow, the Blue Lias coves of Kilve and East Quantoxhead, Dunster, Minehead, to the seaboard combes of Exmoor.
