Now Mr Lovelygrey lived there as a teenager in an age where the local yooves had to resort to breaking into Butlins for entertainment. It was that bad. But now, thanks to lottery funding there's a brilliant new community resource, the Minehead Eye, a combination of indoor skate park, cafe, sound studios and general chill out zone. Lots of the activities available there are aimed at those older kids who's needs are often overlooked by society and who end up trolling around on street corners looking menacing instead. But the building is used by all ages in the local community. I see that there's a pensioner's lunch club and an art group who meet there.
And afterwards we make our longish drive even more worthwhile by meeting up with family for a slap up lunch before a drive back through the picturesque South Western countryside spanning two moors!
