When information is received about the walking route, this page will tell you of diversions and updates along the Coleridge Way.
Update on the closure of the footpath at Watersmeet, mentioned below.
The path is now reinstated and open to walkers.
Recent improvements to the path at Watery Lane just outside Nether Stowey include a nice new wooden rail above the stream.
26th September 2016
The footpath around Watersmeet, alongside the East Lyn River will be closed from the above date for up to 6 months. This is for major repair work. The accompanying map shows the closed section in red and the alternative routes you can take to avoid this. On reaching Ash Bridge, cross the bridge and follow the footpath alongside the other side of the river. Pass the lime kilns close to Watersmeet, then at Watersmeet cross the footbridge over the Hoar Oak Water, bearing right to continue alongside the East Lyn River, picking up the original path at Chiselcombe Bridge.
