Tom Mayberry is a local and an authority on this area of great beauty. I retired to West Somerset some years ago and have enjoyed both the Somerset landscape and the Coleridge Way made famous by the short stay of Coleridge and Wordsworth in the late 18th century. This is a book one can savour time and time again. The development of the Coleridge story accompanied by magnificent plates is excellent. The Appendix is worthy of a book in itself and covers the Alfoxden Journal of Dorothy Wordsworth and a gazetteer of place names and their history. Brilliant both as a reference, a history and a trip along the routes taken by these two founders of Romanticism who changed the landscape and vocabulary of English poetry which impacted on the world. Mayberry does them all full justice.
