Somerset 40 Town and Country Walks

Somerset 40 Town and Country Walks

by: John and Annie Fergusson
There's a lot more to Somerset than scrumpy cider, Cheddar cheese and the Glastonbury Festival. It's a county of contrasts: moorlands and marshes, castle and caverns, cheese and strawberries, gorges and tors. With a variety of landscapes, extraordinary buildings, fascinating wildlife, and history around every corner, not to mention some of the friendliest people you'll ever meet, Somerset is simply asking to be explored.

This selection of 40 circular walks will help you make the most of the uplands and lowlands, woodlands and wetlands of Somerset - 'the land of the summer people'. Each walk entry begins with at-a-glance details of distance, time, terrain, parking and public transport access where available. Clear route finding instructions are provided together with simple overview coloured sketch maps, but OS Explorer map sheet numbers are also provided. The text also includes brief notes on features of interest along the way and there are colour photographs throughout. The walk locations are:
