Day 5
Today's walk starts in Minehead where we look West along the coast
And East towards Butlins
Steve takes us to the start of the South West Coast Path
And we look around the harbour
An old wreck
Then our walk begins
A welcome site for those completing the SWCP
We reach the top of North Hill
And continue along the top of the moor
A steep coombe leads down to the sea
We continue along Selworthy Beacon
Porlock appearing through the mist
Gorse and heather still giving a splash of colour
As we descend around the side of the hill
Then follow a grassy track through woods
To cross a stream
Into Bossington for lunch
Continuing towards Porlock Weir we pass a memorial to airmen killed in a plane crash during WW2
Then we continue along the shingle
Not easy walking
To reach Porlock Weir
Where the tide is out
But the shops are open
A bus ride back into Minehead and chance to check out the steam trains.
