Island Life: We explore Somerset's Steep Holm

Somerset is not exactly blessed with islands, the county has got just one, Steep Holm in the Bristol Channel, but its fans sayit's all about quality not quantity.

It's run by an Environmental Trust set up in thememory of a former television journalist and conservationist, Kenneth Allsop.It's not inhabited but it is possible to take occasional day trips there from Weston-super-Mare.

In the first of a new series we're calling Island Life, our Somerset Correspondent, David Woodland, enjoys escaping from life's normal stresses and strains to spend a day on Steep Holm.
