This is a circular walk
We go uphill out of Freshford, cross the A36, then turn south over fields to the hamlet of Hinton Charterhouse, through the churchyard, south again through field and woods to the outskirts of Norton St Philip, where we’ll have a mid-morning break. We continue west and north-west along a track to the crest of a ridge (views), then down a lane to Wellow for lunch at the Fox & Badger pub or the Riders’ Rest café. We continue north-east along a disused railway track (now a cycle-path) and then a broad track towards Midford. Along here we’ll find a spot for an afternoon break. We cross the B3110 and go up a new track eventually reaching Pipehouse, from where we re-cross the A36 and descend into Freshford again.
Give us a try!
