The Friends of Coleridge (als)
The Friends of Coleridge aim to foster interest in the life and works of the poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge and his circle, and to support Coleridge Cottage in Nether Stowey, Somerset, through co-operation with the National Trust.
We pursue our aims by publishing the Coleridge Bulletin, sent out to members twice a year; by hosting an annual Study Weekend at Kilve in Somerset and by sponsoring a biennial International Conference at Cannington, close to the Quantock Hills, which inspired some of Coleridge's greatest poetry.
