This walk takes us through serene wooded areas filled with tall trees and meadow flowers, quiet lanes and fields and a feeling of being “on top of the world” in this area of outstanding natural beauty which is steeped in history.
A stunning walk of variety and contrast across the windswept and bracing Mendip Moors with truly stunning panoramic views of the Somerset Levels, Brean Down, Steep Holm, Crooks Peak, Sand Bay, Wales and Devon. It is a beautiful walk with no steep hills to climb. (Please note some paths are very overgrown with stinging nettles so long trousers advised). Please read the notes below about parking.
Bring a packed lunch. After the walk we’ll go to a tea shop.

Meet at 11:00 at Christon Village
Please contact the walk leader if you will be meeting them there.
There’s safe parking on a wide part of the road by the sign for CHRISTON. If you are driving towards the motorway bridge with Christon village church on your left, you pass a pink cottage (The Beeches). Just past the cottage the road opens up and is very wide. You can park slightly off the road. This parking is just before the bridge. This is the only suitable place to park for this walk as Christon is a tiny village with no public car park.
The Bristol meet point has been cancelled.
