Length: 3.2 mi • Est. 1 h 31 m
A circular walk from the small village of Kilve in the Quantock Hills in Somerset. The walking route explores a beautiful section of the north Somerset coast, with glorious views across the Bristol Channel and chance to explore the beaches which are rich in fossils. Turning inland, the route leads you through the charming village of East Quantoxhead, a reminder of times gone by with its stone church, manor house, medieval tithe barn, duck pond and old mill house. Towards the end of the walk you will pass the ruins of Kilve Chantry, which dates from the 1300s. The walk includes several moderate gradients throughout and the coastal path is very exposed. Whilst the cliff-top path used for this walk is accessible even at high tide, if you want to explore any of the beaches you might want to time your walk to coincide with mid-low tide. There are no stiles on route, but you will need to negotiate several kissing gates, plus several pedestrian gates that are set within farm gates (the design of these means that you will need to step over a base bar - in some cases up to 30cm high). Most of the route is enclosed away from pastures, but you will need to cross two pastures that are sometimes holding cattle and one that is sometimes holding sheep. You will need to cross two streams, one via a sleeper bridge but the other has no bridge so you will need to pick your way over using the raised bricks laid on the stream bed. Allow 1.5 hours.Show more
