Walk along the old Somerset Coal Canal to its western terminal where wildlife prevails.  Continue on a level course along the  Limestone Link to Greyfield Wood, now managed by The Woodland Trust.  Hidden in the scenery is years of coal mining history.  Return to Timsbury on the outskirts of High Littleton where William Smith, known as the ‘Father of English Geology’ once lived and worked.   A gradual climb up the hillside will give you superb views across the edge of The Mendip Hills before a well deserved cup of tea and cake.

The walk is just over 6 miles, with an elevation of 181m.

This walk is part of the Somer Valley Walking Festival, it isn’t necessary to book.
