Welcome to Storywalks Middle Town Trail
Journey into the heart of Minehead past the alms houses which literally arrived on a storm, discover how the great fire of Minehead came to pass in 1791 and the spectacle of the first aeroplane to land on Minehead sands.
The approach to creating these trails is likened to a skimming stone, stopping at several segments of the trails and dropping interesting facts, myths and tales throughout.
The walks are designed to read aloud to family and friends and to embellish your experience of this place.
Start this trail outside Minehead Museum between the Beach Hotel and Minehead steam railway station.
Allow three quarters of an hour at an amble.
