In March 2016 a new stretch of the English Coast Path opened from Minehead to Brean Down.
This section takes in 58 miles of the beautiful and diverse coast of Somerset. On clear days the fortified promontory of Brean Down offers panoramic views of the whole stretch to Minehead. The path takes you to Burnham on Sea, along the floodbanks to the River Parrett to Bridgwater and back to Steart Point then along the open coast to Hinkley Point. At Hinkley look for diversion signs while development work is taking place.
From Hinkley Point it heads west passing through the historic port of Watchet, before heading to Minehead where it joins the South West Coast Path.
At Brean, Burnham, St Audries and Helwell Bay, please check tide times as the path can be flooded during high tide.
Brean Down is a National Trust site
