Watchet is a harbour town and civil parish in the English county of Somerset, with an approximate population of 4,400. It is situated 15 miles west of Bridgwater, 15 miles north-west of Taunton, and 9 miles east of Minehead. The parish includes the hamlet of Beggearn Huish. The town lies at the mouth of the Washford River on Bridgwater Bay, part of the Bristol Channel, and on the edge of Exmoor National Park.
Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s poem “The Rime of the Ancient Mariner” was written whilst travelling through Watchet and the surrounding area.
The foreshore at Watchet is rocky, with a high 6 metres tidal range. The cliffs between Watchet and Blue Anchor show a distinct pale, greenish blue colour, resulting from the coloured alabaster found there. The name “Watchet” or “Watchet Blue” was used in the 16th century to denote this colour. (Wikipedia)
