A footpath leads from the Bishops Lydeard end of the platform, 4160 is glimpsed here from the path.
At the end of the path is a foot crossing over the line down to the harbour. 4160 is seen here going over the crossing with the harbour in the background.
Once over the crossing you can walk along the side of the harbour, recently converted to a marina following the end of cargo shipping activity here a few years ago.
This warehouse in the old cargo handling area has an interesting motto on it.
New in 2002 is this horse drawn tour of Watchet, many years ago my wife tried something similar from outside Minehead Station with little success, but this one seemed to be doing well when I was there.
On a clear day you can see Steep Holm, an island in the Bristol Channel opposite Weston super Mare from the platform at Watchet.
Steep Holm can also be seen in the background of this view of 7820 Dinmore Manor standing in Watchet station with a Minehead train.
Two views of the Balmoral leaving Watchet, next port of call Minehead.
The poet Coleridge lived near Watchet hence this statue of the Ancient Mariner - complete with dead albatross on the quayside.
