He arrived on a raft with a cow as a companion! Watchet gets its name from WACET, the blue dye found in the cliffs. Watchet was an active port with a host of commodities being traded up and down the coast, to Ireland and Wales, while the Mineral Line brought iron ore down for shipment to Wales. Watchet also has the second highest rise and fall of tide in the world, so be prepared if you wish to see the fossils or walk the beaches.
