Extension to the Coleridge Way

For those of you who know the Coleridge Way and love walking on Exmoor you will be pleased to hear that an extra 14 miles is going to be added from Porlock to Lynmouth, as reported in the West Somerset Freepress 21st February.
Way marked with the distinctive quill signature produced by Exmoor National Park's field services team, the extension will head through Worthy Woods and pass Ash Farm where Coleridge once stayed, before dropping down into the Doone Valley and on to Watersmeet and Lynmouth. The route is due to be ready summer 2014.
Originally opened in 2005, the Coleridge Way walking route links sites and locations associated with the romantic poet Samual Taylor Coleridge during his time in Somerset.
From Lynmouth an additional spur follows the South West Coast Path into the Valley of the Rocks and Poets Corner. The total route will be 50 miles long and more information will be found at www.coleridgeway.co.uk
