The small resort of Blue Anchor grew up around the seaside station

Carhampton lies on the shore of Blue Anchor Bay in the Bristol Channel between Watchet and Minehead. For most people it is home to one of the few straight stretches of road on the route from Taunton to Dunster or Minehead. Tourists seldom venture beyond the small resort at Blue Anchor and its large sandy beach. The parish of Carhampton will appear in the proposed volume XII of the Somerset VCH which will also include a substantial account of the medieval town of Dunster.
