A  walk through the beautiful valleys of Combe Hay and Midford taking in two dis-used railway lines, and the  Somersetshire Coal Canal.

We will be walking down into the valley then along the valley before climbing back up to the plateau.

Of particular interest is the industrial heritage of the area, whilst it is no longer industrialised, it is a very beautiful area of hills and valleys.
