12/9/15 We decided to finish off Brean Down and stroll on to Weston. The bus journeys were getting longer and the walk was starting to get disjointed as there was no official path anymore. Once up on Brean Down, the advantage of being able to see the rain coming in didn't stop us getting wet again. It stopped by the time we reached the fort.
From here we could see where we had been, Wales and where we were headed.
Between us and Weston though was the river Axe. We followed a footpath down to where a ferry used to run over to Uphill. But to get to the other side is now a long bus journey.
Uphill had a couple of pubs, but once back on what might be called a coastpath, Weston's large beach awaited.
Weston itself is like most bigger resorts with large bland pubs. It seemed like we had run out of what we were looking for, a coastpath with characterful pubs in distinctive settings.
