The ‘Coleridge Way’ had a stand and Ian Pearson (Coleridge Way Companion Guide) and Damon Wilcox (Encounter Walking Holidays) attended to man the table and tell the 100 or so attendees all about the Coleridge Way.

We even managed to […]

Day 5 – Lynmouth to Porlock Weir

Although, I say this is day five, I met up yesterday with Chris McCooey, a freelance journalist and writer. Chris walked the Coleridge Way with me when it first opened and I was very happy when he accepted my invitation to walk the route again to include the extension.
