This walk takes you from the shingle beach at Dunster up to the magnificent medieval village with its yarn market and topped off with a castle. Originally “Dunn’s Torre”, a craggy fortification overlooking the Bristol Channel, the settlement was given by William the Conqueror gave to the powerful de Mohun family to build a castle to protect the coast. In 1375 the feudal barony was purchased by the Luttrell family who owned the Castle until 1976 when it was gifted to the National Trust. Having explored the streets and shops, the walk takes you past the heritage railway station back to the beach along the riverside.
