Somerset Beach Guide



The beach at Stolford is backed by a storm bank of pebbles, with the lower shore consisting of bands of shale and limestone. There are some small patches of sand and mudflats lower down. It can be good for fossils, and ammonites are common. The lane through Stolford village ends at a gravelled parking area overlooking the beach. Signs warn of the dangers of treacherous mud.

Fishermen here used to use a unique device known as the Stolford Mud-horse - a kind of wooden sled which would take most of their weight as they pushed it across the mud-flats.
