Watchet harbour became the inspiration for the epic poem The Ancient Mariner by the romantic poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge. In 1797 he walked over the Quantock Hills from his home in Nether Stowey, along with his friends William and Dorothy Wordsworth and came upon Watchet. It has been said that looking down at the town from St Decuman's Church gave him the inspiration for his poem.
