New signs on Coleridge Way in Exmoor to encourage walkers

Related Stories

A footpath named after the English poet Samuel Coleridge, which spans the Quantocks, Brendons and Exmoor, has had new signs installed.

The Coleridge Way is so named because the poet lived in Nether Stowey, and the area inspired some of his work.

The hand-crafted signs are made from wood sourced locally and will make the 36-mile (57 km) route simpler.

Exmoor park ranger, Adam Vasey hopes they will make people more "confident" in navigating the footpaths.

"Hopefully this better way-marking will encourage people to get out a bit more in Exmoor National Park," he said.
