Porlock Marsh and Porlock Weir

Porlock Marsh and Porlock Weir

Habitat: Tidal marsh/mud, shingle, adjacent farmland; sea

Car parks Porlock Weir: SS865479, TA24 8PB; Bossington: SS898480, TA24 8HQ

  • Directions

    For Bossington turn off the A39 through Allerford. From entrance of NT car park (P + D) turn right and right again and follow track and footpath to the old kilns.
    For Porlock Weir take the B3225 from Porlock to the village; park only in P + D car park.

  • Accessibility

    Paths on Porlock Marsh and to Gore Point are mostly flat but narrow and can be muddy, so neither site is particularly wheelchair friendly, though you can usefully sea-watch from benches in Porlock Weir car park. Toilets at both car parks, and other facilities in villages or in Porlock.

  • About the Site
