[Exp154] Option to join the walk part way through at 11:15 at the lay-by with a bus stop half way up Brockley Combe (entrance to Fountain Timber, GR ST484664). This gives a walk of 8 miles.
This is a circular walk
This walk replaces the advertised Strawberry Line walk, as First Bus are no longer offering a Cheddar to Weston Sunday service.
Our walk starts from the village of Backwell and climbs gently, leading to views across the Bristol Channel to the Welsh Hills, and down to Steep Holm. Later, we have fine views of the Vale of Wrington and the Mendips before we descend into the village of Wrington for our lunch stop at the welcoming and spacious Plough Inn. The afternoon will see us return via Goblin Combe and Brockley Combe. The vast majority of this walk is on good tracks and well drained limestone bridal ways.
Those wishing for a shorter walk (8 miles) should meet us at 11:15 at the lay-by with a bus stop half way up Brockley Combe (entrance to Fountain Timber, GR ST484664).
