South West Coastal Path

The South West Coast Path is England’s longest waymarked long-distance footpath and a National Trail. It stretches for 630 miles, running from Minehead in Somerset, along the coasts of Somerset, Cornwall, Devon and Dorset to Poole Harbour in Dorset

Now if you thinking of walking it like myself I have broken down the route to manageable stages which would be suitable for myself and the average walker.
