Minehead view

Minehead is a coastal town right next to the Exmoor national park. The name is derived from the Celtic word mynedd which means hill which is very appropriate given it is overlooked by North Hill. Historically Minehead has been a succesful trading port, mostly trading with Wales, but in recent years it has become a popular seaside resort with a good beach and it is largely associated with Butlins Holiday Camp.

There are lots of other interesting places to view in the area including the historic town of Dunster.
