Parish Walks

Somerset is a wonderful county full of contrast and there is no better way to absorb its beauty, variety and history than through the Public Rights of Way Network. The county has over 9000 rights of way totalling 3808 miles (6129 km) and we are blessed locally with lovely walks and views.

We have devised some circular routes around the parish for you to enjoy. An overview map is shown here and detailed descriptions of the walks are being prepared; they will be published here and as leaflets available locally as soon as possible. Thanks to our volunteers, Somerset County Council and the Parish Online team for making this happen.

Enjoy the outdoors but please always be ‘tick aware’

and follow the Countryside Code

You can also use Explore Somerset mapping to plan a walk, ride or cycle, or simply check where a public right of way is – follow this link to view the entire Public Rights of Way network in Somerset. You will also be able to see what type of assets (for example, stiles, gates) are on the paths or view and report issues on the network. 

To report a problem, please locate the issue on the map as accurately as possible as this makes it easier for the wardens and rangers to locate and investigate. Issues will be assessed and where necessary, action taken to try and resolve them. If you supply your email address on the form you will receive updates when the issue has been assigned and resolved or closed.
