From Axbridge we will head straight up Shute Shelve Hill; if the weather is clear we will be rewarded with a great view back over Cheddar Reservoir and the Somerset Levels. The walk continues through fields and woodland before connecting with the Strawberry Line. We will follow this disused railway line past the former site of Winscombe Station and through the original Shute Shelve Railway Tunnel, allowing us to pass under (or through) the hill we climbed over at the beginning of the walk. We will then return to Axbridge along the banks of the Cheddar Yeo river.
Bring packed lunch. Pub to finish.
