2 Boot Shute Shelve Circular (20s & 30s Walk)

Event Date: Sun 20 January 2019
Event Time: 09:00

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.

About Brunel Walking Group

Thanks for visiting us! Brunel Walking Group is for young(ish) people in the Bristol and Bath area who love the countryside and like to get outside on a weekend.

What is Brunel Walking Group?

Brunel is a thriving group with over 400 members and is part of The Ramblers charity. All of our walk leaders and committee members are volunteers, dedicated to sharing our fantastic countryside with others.  Read more on our FAQs page

How do I join the walk?

There is no need to sign up to join a walk, just turn up at the meeting point where we will share lifts to the start of the walk.  You’re very welcome to try out 1 or 2 walks before you join, but we do insist that after that you join the Brunel Walking Group.  It’s OK if you don’t drive – we normally have enough drivers who are able to give lifts, but drivers often appreciate it when a voluntary contribution is made by passengers towards their costs.

How do I know what to bring? And am I fit enough?

We provide a full recommended kit list here.  Please do bring water, a rainproof jacket, walking trousers (or similar) and walking shoes/boots – avoid jeans and trainers.

Walks are graded as either 1 boot, 2 boot or 3 boot.  Read more about choosing the right walk for your fitness level here,
