About the event

We will be heading down to the furthest reaches of the seashore on one of the lowest tides of the year to look for some of the more unusual inhabitants of the intertidal zone which could include sea slugs, honeycomb worms and sun stars led by SWT expert marine biologists Nigel Phillips and Mark Ward.

Know before you go


Unfortunately this walk is not suitable for people with reduced mobility as we will be negotiating slippery and muddy pebbles and seaweed. We will be heading straight for the lower shore which is a fair distance from the top of the beach.

Wheelchair access


What to bring

The weather can still be changeable at this time of year so please bring plenty of warm and waterproof layers. It can be quite exposed at the bottom of the beach especially if it is windy so hats and scarves might be useful. Wellington boots or sturdy walking boots that you don't mind getting wet, muddy and salty are highly recommended. 

You may want to eat before we start. There are plenty of shops and cafes in Minehead. Bring snacks with you if you wish.

We will be a good distance from any toilets for several hours.
