A Walk to Minehead

The walk is about 2 miles in length and will take around 45 minutes, and takes the walker along the beach from Dunster Station to Minehead, passing the Dunster Beach Huts and the Minehead Golf course

Walk along the platform in the direction of Blue Anchor. At the end of the platform there is a narrow pathway that will take you alongside the railway line to Sea Lane level crossing
