Welcome to the Storywalks Quay Town Trail
Tales of smuggling and maritime history abound on this walk. Discover the surprising location of Minehead's inland lagoon which naturally provided a safe harbour, the tale of the stolen boy and the silvery catch that brought prosperity and international trade to the town.
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 in Blenheim gardens and make your way to the large circular flower bed at the town end of the park to begin.
Allow three quarters of an hour at an amble.
