Watchet, Washford along the Old Mineral Line


In the light of COVID-19 please be aware that this event/venue might not be operating as normal so do check before you visit.

The Watchet to Washford walk along the Old Mineral Line is ideal for keen walkers and families. This is a moderate to difficult walk in places, with steps, steep climbs and some uneven surfaces, although it is stile free.

There is loads to see and do in beautiful Watchet, including taking a trip from the town’s picturesque station on the West Somerset Railway. Museums include the fascinating Market House Museum with its tales of kings, queens, murderous knights and pirates and the Boat Museum which houses an intriguing collection of local flat bottomed boats. The town is also packed with independent shops and art galleries including Contains Art, a gallery and studios in converted shipping containers on the quayside.
