Poets Walk

UK»England»Somerset»Clevedon»Poets Walk

Poets Walk: Poet's Walk encompasses two coastal hills, Church Hill and the iron age hillfort, Wains Hill, which is designated as a Scheduled Ancient Monument. The habitats include limestone grassland, scrub and woodland with a variety of wild flowers on some of the exposed coastal slopes, while the plateau areas are less species rich. The site is valuable for wintering and migratory birds. The cliff top walks provide extensive views of the Severn estuary and the North Somerset Levels and Moors. The name derives from the fact that it was visited and appreciated by Coleridge and Tennyson.
