All of the new town signs in Minehead have an innovative QR code which directs smart phone users to the Minehead Town Guide App. Being free and easily downloadable the app is a simple way for visitors to find out more about this West Somerset seaside town. Featuring interactive town trails highlighting Minehead’s unique heritage, holidaymakers will hear stories like the one about Mother Leaky; Minehead’s ghostly and malevolent spirit who, it is said, whistles down the wind to bring about shipping tragedies. On a more positive note they can also discover the house where Arthur C Clarke grew up, the start - or finish -of the great South West Coast Path, the town’s famous steam railway and the fascinating harbour quarter. The history & heritage trails are available also at the Minehead Information Centre.
