When we visited Stogursey village on the Sunday and day of the ladies World Cup final. We noticed a bus stop and a bus time table hanging from the bus stop pole.
There was a bus on Monday morning to Taunton at 7.30 in the morning. So we got up at 5 that morning and walked 3 miles to the village. It soon became light and we arrived three quarters of an hour before the little bus arrived.
It stopped for us and the bus driver and another bus man doing the bus route knowledge said they never ever stopped for anyone in the village. The man stood at the front informed us that the ten mile journey was only 2 Pounds and subsidiaries by the government made this possible. It's a shame they can't provide public transport in all those and other rural villages that can not avail of such services.
We arrived in Taunton and looked for the United Reform Church. I asked a Community Policeman if he knew where the church was? He kindly Googled it for us and said it was just up the road and his friend had a flat in the very building:
Sure enough after crossing a very busy road via a pelican crossing. We noticed a blue plaque stating that Samuel Taylor Coleridge had preached at this very building when it was a United Reformed Church. STC would walk the Nether Stowey to Taunton road on a Sunday morning. It was only ten miles each way.
