A stunning ridgewalk from a proposed site of Camelot. Fantastic for dogs there are extensive views over Somerset to Devon. Easy walking for the most part but a couple ups and downs on the way. There is a pub at the start/finish and at the half way point.
Read the classic novel Lorna Doone then visit the valley on Exmoor said to have inspired the book. Visit the tiny church where Lorna was shot on her wedding day. A quite challenging walk with open moorland, ancient woodland and the remains of a medieval village. Take it at your own pace and savour the different environments. You'll need to bring a picnic for this one.
With stunning Views of Wiltshire and Dorset, the Wiltshire downs offer a variety of routes taking in ancient woodland, chalk grassland with its special plants, Wiltshire villages, iron age forts and the site of a Roman villa.
Particularly awesome in the spring when the bluebells are in flower, a short walk can fit into an evening.
I have been a member of the walking group established in Bruton by Katherine for nearly three years now.I have really enjoyed Katherine 's company,finding her to be a calm,friendly leader of many excellent walks which she has researched thoroughly beforehand.She has used social media to advertise activities which has made it ultra easy for people to stay in touch.She has a great sense of humour and has proved herself to be entirely responsible and reliable.
I have been on many walks with Katherine over the years. The walks are well-planned and we have full information on what to expect. I would not walk without my dog and and delighted that dogs are welcome on the walks. The dogs all get on well. Katherine is friendly and knowledgeable, ensuring all the group get the best from the walk.
