Walking in Somerset website

Babington House, Frome, Somerset

Are you fed-up with doing the same old walks?

We have been asked to share the Walking in Somerset website – which may be of interest to residents!

With hundreds of walks to download and print, free, it also has books of walks, contact details for all the walking groups in the county and much more. Whether you want to walk on your own or with a group all the information is there in one place.

John said ‘There is so much walking information on the web but it is difficult to find. Walking in Somerset (part of the Walking in England suite of websites (  – one for each county in England) has brought it together in one place so whether you are walking from home, or away on holiday, you will be able to find a walk suitable for you’.

With walks from half a mile to twelve miles plus long, and a note of suitability for pushchairs and wheelchairs, everyone can find a walk to enjoy.

So you may wish to check out the websites and get walking!
