Day 60 Williton to Exford – Monday 11 July

Distance 27.31 miles, cumulative 1,071.71 miles, time 9 hrs 40 mins, walking time 8 hrs 30 mins, pace 3.2 mph, camped Westermill Farm
Thanks to Paul, Jane and Buzz for their excellent hospitality. Paul even washed our socks, which is above and beyond the call of duty. After a very large and lovely breakfast we got going and we were escorted to the town boundary by Jane and Buzz, presumably to ensure we did leave together with our socks. 

Shortly after leaving Williton we joined the Coleridge Way which we followed from Roadwater to Wheddon Cross. Named after the poet Samuel Coleridge the whole path runs for 51 miles from Netherstowey to Lynton. It goes through the Quantocks, Brendan Hills and Exmoor National Park. We would recommend the Coleridge Way and would like to return to do the whole route. 

It was a fine, breezy day with a few spots of rain. 

We left the Quantocks and climbed onto Exmoor skirting Dunkery Beacon before dropping down to the campsite near Exford. The campsite was 2.5 miles from the nearest pub so we cooked up at the tent.
