    When I sailed in the Bristol Channel (fairly extensively and widely) a Danforth with just a small amount of chain and LOTS of warp was the best thing for almost everywhere (mainly except the shingly patches off Porlock where a Fisherman worked better than either the Danforth or a CQR). I did sometimes lower a weight down the warp as well. Chain's OK too but not so much that you weigh the bow down when sailing.

    I used a 22lb cqr when I sailed out of Cardiff. With 36m of chain and 50m of rope if needed. It worked fine. My favourite daysail was around the Holmes, you can anchor behind steepholm. The islands have some interesting military features.

    I also anchored at Minehead a lot, there is a white paint mark on the cliffs just west of Minehead to mark the spot.
