NEWS FROM EXMOOR NATIONAL PARK
People who enjoy following in the footsteps of Coleridge should now find it easier to find their way, because new wooden fingerpost signs have been erected along the route which stretches from the Quantocks to Porlock in Exmoor National Park.
A recent survey of Coleridge Way carried out by the Ranger team at Exmoor National Park showed that many of the signs needed replacing, but none of the original ones were left.
Exmoor National Park ranger Adam Vasey explains: “All of our wooden fingerposts are hand crafted and the timber locally sourced from our own woodlands, so working with our Field Services Team we came up with a new simplified Coleridge Way ‘quill’ logo that could be hand-routed by the team onto our fingerposts. We used a colour system to distinguish between the Coleridge Bridleway and Coleridge Footpath; yellow for the footpath and blue for the bridleway.
“There are some great B&Bs offering accommodation and food along way and many also offer livery for those enjoying the Bridleway, so why not give it and try and enjoy a some fantastic scenery?”
Due to popular demand, the Moor Rover flexible transport service can now be booked for accessing the Coleridge Way, for more information visit: http://www.atwest.org.uk/moor_rover.html
