Overview

'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). The extensive path network is varied ranging from long distance routes such as the South West Coast Path and the River Parrett Trail, to a number of promoted circular routes and local country paths.'

Overview

'Why not come on one of the Wessex Wanderers Railway Walks over the summer (between May and October each year) and have a great day out?  This is a great way to enjoy the combination of travelling by train and going to a different area and exploring the countryside.'
