Southwest Coast Path midway marker
Southwest Coast Path midway marker
This is the mid point of the Minehead to Poole National Trail - 630 miles in total length. Arts for Health Cornwall contracted local artist Tom Leaper to develop a design for the marker in collaboration with writer Stephen Hall, to celebrate the path and the physical, mental and spiritual benefits of using the South West Coast Path for exercise in the natural environment. They worked with members of the local community in creating a poem ‘Fading Voices’ consisting of words and phrases gathered together in workshops to represent the voices of Porthallow. These are engraved on this side of the marker facing the village, and the sea-facing side is engraved with the names of local flora and fauna. 'PRALLA' is the local pronunciation of Porthallow, meaning 'port of the river'.
