The Nature of Somerset’s Coast
July 10 @ 14:00 - 15:00Free
Join the SANHS Natural History Committee and Nigel Phillips for a Zoom webinar about the Somerset coast
Somerset’s coast is a place of great diversity, in its landscapes, and in its wildlife. From lower shore rock pools, the birds on the beaches, to plant and insect life on cliff tops and dunes, it really is a place of wonder, and it’s on our doorstep!
Nigel Phillips works with the Somerset Wildlife Truste, and is the author of Somerset’s Coast – A Living Landscape as well as The Nature of Somerset’s Coast, forthcoming.

GRADING OF WALKS
Events are graded from 1-4 in difficulty. The grading is found in the event description in the calendar on this page. Keep in mind that a change in weather conditions can make a walk more difficult than anticipated. All walks and activities demand a basic level of fitness, suitable footwear and waterproof clothing.
1 Easy – generally even ground with a few gentle slopes; no special fitness needed. Comfortable footwear required.
2 Moderate – for reasonably fit people, may include unsurfaced rural paths and tracks, moderate slopes, uneven surfaces, steps and stiles. Walking shoes/boots required.
3 Strenuous – for fit, experienced walkers, will include hills, uneven surfaces, tracks and may include muddy terrain. Walking boots and waterproof clothing are essential.
4 Confined spaces – including caves and attics. Locations may be dusty, slippery and dark.
Activity leaders carry out a risk assessment beforehand. Participants are required to provide emergency contact details before taking part in an activity – this information is destroyed by the group leader after the activity has taken place.
