The Somerset Coast
The Somerset Coast
  • Description
Think of Britain's most outstanding coastline and the 50-mile or so Somerset stretch might be a less obvious contender but as author Rodney Legg describes it: 'The Somerset scenery starts well, improves greatly and bows out with grandeur.' The remarkable 40-feet tidal range of the Bristol Channel - second only to that of the Bay of the Fundy in Canada - along with its changing moods and character, inspires a 'mixture of wonder and awe' , as well as being Britain's link with Europe and America since John Cabot sailed down it on his voyage of exploration in 1497. Taking a route down-channel, from west to east - broken up into a series of self-contained walks mapped out with reference by the author - is a journey back in time some 350-million years, with fossil evidence and visible remnants of a cataclysmic explosion of 224 million years ago, which may have seen the creation of the Atlantic Ocean. Along the way is a wealth of ever-changing scenery, characterised by unique plant life and wildlife, from the purple-petal wild peony of Steep Holm to the otters of Otterhampton and the amazing bird life of the internationally important wetlands either side of the Steart Peninsula. The Somerset coast has it all and more. 230x215mm, hardback book consisting of 144 pages well illustrated with B/W and colour photographs. ISBN 1841143022.
