River Parrett Trail: Burrowbridge to Langport

Sunday 10th December 2017

Along with walking more of the Severn Way long-distance footpath, there’s a chance I’ll be able to complete the River Parrett Trail in 2018.

It’s only fifty-miles in length (same as the full Mendip Way) and could be completed in a short series of circular walks. From Steart in Somerset, at one end of the West Somerset Coast Path; it continues south, it follows the river south to its source, across the border and in to Devon.

Combwich Coastal Walk

A circular walk from Combwich in Somerset that heads out to Hinkley Point before walking back along the coastal path.

Saturday 26th August 2017

This was one of those occasions where I was looking to do a walk but not entirely certain of where to go and also reluctant to travel too far from home.

Burrowbridge and Beyond

Saturday 18th March 2017

This would be my second walk in the Burrowbridge area and an attempt to finalise a pre-walk, for a group event that I’m actually leading tomorrow.

My first walk here followed too many roads and hard paths for my liking. With some familiarity already behind me, I wanted to explore further.

River Parrett Walk

Saturday 4th March 2017

I’d been wanting to revisit the northern end of the River Parrett, ever since walking it with Anna in 2016, as part of our effort to complete the unofficial Somerset Coast Path.

Back then, we took a mutual shortcut in the aim of saving time and making the stretch less mundane, as even the new England Coast Path requires you to walk along both sides of this wide river before reaching Steart and heading west past the Quantocks.

In this walk, I would fill in the missing miles. On my own, for now.
