Porlock Weir and Village

Went to Porlock Weir and Porlock Village on Monday 19th June 2017, not a lot happening at the Weir, but it was quite interesting never the less, loads of shops and pubs and cafe’s, sadly the tide was out, so not many boats in the harbour. A lovely day was had with the temperatures at about 28 degrees (starting to go a bit red!), called into Porlock village and had a spot of lunch at the Castle Hotel, and very nice too! If your in the area, its worth a visit 4 or 5 miles outside Minehead on the A39.
Check out the video and photos of my time there. » Read more

The victims will then often witness the mouse moving and changes being made to the display. They then pay a fee (anything between £100 and £300 has been reported to Action Fraud) and are told the problem has been resolved. » Read more
