Colin Crosby Heritage Tours


Dunster is an exquisite little town in Somerset, 2 miles from Minehead and on the edge of Exmoor.

St. George`s Church retains the part that was once a priory, and the remains of the cloisters are now a garden. The 16th century rood screen is the widest in England.

Dunster Castle has a mediaeval gatehouse, while the romantic-looking upper parts are Victorian.

The view along the picturesque High Street, including the 16th century octagonal Yarn Market, is dominated at one end by the castle, and at the other by a tower folly on a wooded hillside.

The 16th century Yarn Market Hotel stands beside the Yarn Market.

A circular dovecote is of 12th century origin, and the nearby tithe barn is used for community events.

Dunster Station is about a mile away on the way to the beach. It is a station on the restored West Somerset Railway.

Blue Badge Guide Colin Crosby is available to lead Guided Walks around Dunster for groups.
