We posted yesterday’s blog from the Notley Arms just before the Stogumber Church Choir descended upon us. They seemed polite enough, until the red wine started to flow and then all hell broke loose

We were also fortunate enough to catch up with Chris Edwards, manager of the Quantocks AONB – well out of his patch but more than willing to talk about the Coleridge Way, Quantocks and Fyne Court.
