(D/A) The walk starts in School Lane. Walk until the paved road split and turn on the second path on your left.
(1) When the path splits, take the path on your right and then, take the wide path that goes up and straight.
(2) Follow the path on the left. At the first intersection, keep going straight to the second intersection where you'll go right and right again at the next intersection.
(3) Take the first path on your left which goes down. This part of the walk might be really muddy and therefore slippery.
(4) Turn right.
(5) Look for a small path on your left and take it. After a few meters, you will walk along with a small water court.
(6) Turn right on the path that climbs to the West Mendip Way. When you're at the top, go right and walk down. The path will join a paved road. Follow it until you reach the car park (D/A)

Lovely walk. Nothing majorly challenging, a few uphills and some stunning views. I’d add pictures but there doesn’t seem to be an option.
This Somerset walk includes a wonderful ridge walk along the West Mindop Way to the summit of Crook Peak. The return route passes through the villages of Compton Bishop and Cross.
A short walk in Somerset to the southwest of Bristol. The circular toute includes the village of Wraxall and also provides the opportunity to explore the grounds and parkland of the National Trust's Tyntesfield.
This Somerset walk takes you through unspoilt countryside sheletered beneath the slopes of the Mendip Hills. The route includes tracks, footpaths and quiet country lanes.
This linear Somerset walk includes typical English countryside, quiet villages, old buildings and historic churches. The route runs from Keynsham to Bath along the northern fringes of the Mendip Hills, and its proximity to both Bath and Bristol ensures that it is well served by public transport.
A circular walk through the newly created Steart Marshes along well made pathways, with an optional extension to the breach in the former sea defences on the River Parrett.
A circular walk around Hawkridge Reservoir with opportunities for some bird watching. Then through mixed woodland and across high pasture with views across to the Mendips and Glastonbury Tor. The mile extension takes in a renovated limekiln and a viewpoint on Hawkridge Common.
The walk follows the Corton Ridge and offers great views across the Somerset Levels and the Dorset Hills. It has great historic significance as Cadbury Castle is reputed to be Camelot King Arthur's Castle. You also cross the ancient medieval village of Whitcombe. It's an up and downer and can be boggy in wet weather. As an incentive there are two great pubs you can call in at!
