Today, I take in the rolling hills of the Somerset coastline to the seaside resort with the famous holiday camp.
From here it was a steep climb up onto Bossington Hill.
I caught up with a couple who were taking a break. I was glad to stop myself and have a chat. It was the last day of their holiday. I just want to thank Anita and David for their donation and hope they enjoyed the rest of the day.
When I got to the top of the hill, I met a group of elderly walkers who were part of a walking group. They looked quite fresh considering the effort it had taken me to get to this point. I was most upset when they said there was an easier way up.
Along the front at Minehead, I found the sculpture of a pair of hands holding a map. This marks the start or end point of the South West Coastal Path.
Minehead is also the end of the line for the West Somerset Railway which claims to be the longest Heritage railway in England.
Of course you cannot mention Minehead without referring to the famous Billy Butlins Holiday Camp. It has probably provided many jobs for the people of the town. Yes, there were people trudging along the front wheeling their suitcases after them.
