Follow in the footsteps of poets

Poets’ Walk is a little over a mile in length but the area includes a wealth of features, including limestone grassland, woodland, a rich diversity of wildlife, an Iron Age fort, Second World War shelter, and stunning views across the Bristol Channel. The site is managed by North Somerset Council with help from the Friends of Poets’ Walk volunteer group and, thanks to their hard work, some old footpaths have recently been opened up. Poets’ Walk is a tranquil route around Church Hill and Wain’s Hill. Its name is a reference to the English poets Samuel Taylor Coleridge and Alfred Tennyson, who visited Clevedon and were inspired by the time they spent there. Start this walk at Marine Lake, which underwent an £850,000 restoration last year.
