From Mells we follow Wadbury Valley to Great Elm then over gentle hills to the villages of Buckland Dinham and Lullington. We return to Mells via Vallis Vale. There’s walking on river sides, some industrial archaeology including 19th century iron works and old railway lines, and plenty of geology on display with a great example of a limestone ‘unconformity’.
Meet: 9.30am at Mells on the road opposite the Talbot Inn pub, grid ref ST727492, BA11 3PN. There should be sufficient parking on the road here, but if not please park elsewhere in Mells, eg near the post office/shop.
Also Geoffrey will be organising the lift sharing at the carpark opposite St. Mary Redcliffe at 8.45am.
Bring a packed lunch. Pub to finish.
