Blue Anchor is a quiet seaside village with a long sandy beach. At high tide the promenade is a popular destination for fishermen hoping for a large catch. Blue anchor gives stunning coastal views to Minehead and Exmoor and across the Bristol Channel to South Wales and as far as Weston-super-Mare.
History of Blue Anchor Station
Until Doniford Halt was constructed in the 1980s Blue Anchor was the ‘newest’ station on the Line being built in the 1870s. Opened after Washford, Dunster and Minehead when the original line was extended to Minehead the station was first known as Bradley Gate before reverting to a name whose explanation is a source of some debate. The station grew to its present form and size gradually as seaside holidays grew in popularity. In this early part of the 21st Century the population grows enormously as holiday makers arrive at the local park spread along the top of the esplanade that runs outside the station.
Please be carefull of the road.
Parking and refreshments are available at the station.
Please ensure the cache remains well hidden due to the high level of muggle activity. Please make sure it is fixed back correctly.
