This is a circular walk
From Burrington Ham car park (GR ST 489581), we will head toward the village of Blagdon, and descend through the village down to footpaths close to the edge of Blagdon Lake, and along the boundary of Wessex Water land to Ubley. We will then start to climb up through fields and woodland to Hazel farm and continue down to Compton Martin for lunch. After the stop, we will head straight up to the top of the hills, and walk back to the car park staying on the higher ground. It should not be too muddy. Magnificent views of Chew Valley and Blagdon Lakes from different angles and height, weather permitting. The total ascent is approximately 2700 feet.
