A series of 12 interactive heritage trails along the Somerset section of the England Coast Path. These trails are like a skimming stone of interesting facts, myth, history and tales linked to location, designed to be enjoyed by family and friends and to embellish the experience of these locations. Additionally each trail has a curious and eclectic selection of Somerset dialect words between chapters, encouraging walkers to discuss the possible meaning and pronunciation of each, as they move to the next zone for the reveal.

Narrated by Jenny Warwick, from original transcripts by C Jelley with support from Dr Helen Blackman.
