POET'S Walk in Clevedon has received some mixed reviews on TripAdvisor.

Despite being just over a mile long, the walk around Church Hill and Wain's Hill is steeped in history.

Its name is in reference to English poets Samuel Taylor Coleridge and Alfred Tennyson. They would often visit the town, taking inspiration from the scenery and the people of Clevedon.

According to one visitor, the walk is perfect for literature or history lovers. They said: "If you like poetry or the history of literature, this is a must-do!

"William Wordsworth used to travel down from the north to visit Samuel Taylor Coleridge in Somerset, and they would walk along here, sharing their muse and musing.

"I can imagine them proclaiming aloud to each other!

"In any case, it's a fantastic stroll along here with wonderful views along the Marine Lake and across to Wales. Highly recommended!"

One commenter said: "This is a lovely place to walk along on a nice sunny day.

"There are several place that you can see Clevedon Pier from, and all along the way you can see the sea."

Another called the walk a "must" when in Clevedon. They said: "Amazing views, bought back many happy memories.

"Plenty of seats along the way for a rest if required, all offering magnificent views. Take a book and a flask on a nice day and enjoy."

However, not everyone shared this opinion. Commenting on TripAdvisor, someone said: "Short coastal walk that lacks the views and charm of most other walks I do.

"Not the best walk out there but if you are by the area of Clevedon, there isn't much else to do besides this and look at the pier!

"The walk passes an old church and a mud trap where the river flows into the sea. Pretty boring and uninteresting. Don't bother!"

One person was surprised at how short the walk was: "It was ok but I wouldn’t call this a hiking trail. Short walk with nice views. I was hoping this was going to take a couple of hours but we did it all in about 30 minutes."
