Pleased to announce that I have just had David Milton the Watchet Bell Man here in the Visitor Centre making arrangements for the Walks and Talks for this Summer.
Visitors and locals can book their place on a walk by emailing the Visitor Centre on firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 01984 632101. Places will be limited and subject to Covid restrictions. The walk is approximately 2.5mile and takes about 2 hours.
You will meet the Bell Man at the Visitor Centre where the first Port of Call is the Boat Museum. During your walk you will be shown local points of interest, told local history, hear weird and wonderful facts about Watchet and best of all the Bell Man will sing Sea Shanties at various points along the Walk. The content of the Walk can vary considerably depending on who you might meet on the way!
We have arranged the walks for a Wednesday when Watchet has its Market so that gives you two good reasons to visit. We have also arranged the time of the Walk to coincide with high tide so that Visitors can take pictures of the habour.
We have added dates for our evening walks over Halloween. These are very popular, with tales of local folklore and eerie goings on! Bring a torch and wrap up warm. (PS These walks have been known to end up at the Pub!!!)
These are the dates for the Walks and Talks with the Bell Man. We look forward to seeing you this season.
