Our walks

Bays Pond, Cheddar Village
Bays Pond, Cheddar Village

Our committee has created a number of walks of varying grades and lengths. Some of these are well known local walks such as the tour of the top of the Gorge, others which will take you to lesser-known corners of the village, some which go around our local nature reserves and yet more which will take you out on to the beginnings of the Somerset Levels from where you can look back at the Mendip Hills.
