Getting to Watchet

Watchet is a town on the north coast of Somerset and on the southern shores of the Bristol Channel in the administrative district of West Somerset. Westwards is Exmoor, and southwards the Brendon Hills, while to the East are the Quantocks.

All provide a scenic backdrop to the town as it nestles beneath the church, below the hill before the lighthouse top.
