The first walk in a series following the 51 mile long Coleridge Way across Somerset, with my friend Anna.
Monday 14th June 2021
It’s probably been a year since we first talked about walking the Coleridge Way. My friend Anna has been keen on completing this fifty-one mile route across West Somerset. Together, we’d previously completed the entire Somerset Coast Path and this was going to be our next adventure.

I’m sure I’ll have written previously that I don’t walk on Exmoor often enough. In 2018, I can only think of two occasions where I visited this quite local National Park and each of those days was with Brunel Walking Group.
Here we are in only the second month of 2019 and I’ve recently complete my second walk on Exmoor for the year!
