Walk off those Christmas Calories

I've had a request to repeat the Burrington Coombe walk that we did in September on Boxing Day - to help burn off all that Christmas excess and get you all out from in front of the burning log fire (if only!). The details of the walk are as follows:-

We'll meet in the car park at the bottom of Burrington Coombe and then take a steady circular walk that will take us past an abandoned house, then ascend towards the top of Mendip past a famous cave to the trig point that is the highest point on Mendip - you will get fantastic views if the day is clear - we'll then descend and cross Burrington Coombe at the top where we will decide if we want to extend the walk via Blagdon, Rickford and eventually back to Burrington. Distance will be about 7 miles if we do the whole walk - but well worth it just for the views.

 

And we can go for a beer in The New Inn at Blagdon afterwards.

    Fun, lively and chatty people and didn't notice we'd reached height until we were already up there. Panoramic views to the far distance. Confidence-inducing host. Thank you Andy.

    I have offered a lift to someone from Keynsham who I met at the Bath Christmas drinks at the Westgate pub (sorry, I can't remember your name...). Please reply to this if you still need a ride, and I'll come and pick you up.

    Do you have a post code for this? Will be at my sisters for Christmas. Not sure what time she's kicking me out on Boxing day but it's on the way home. I've not booked a slot as I don't want to stop someone else from going. Will just take pot luck on the day.

      Peter - BS40 7AT is the postcode for the Burrington Inn - we will be meeting in the first car park on your left as you come up the coombe - therefore if you get to the Burrington Inn you've gone too far (only by about 100 yards) - if you struggle give me a ring on the day - but its the same car park we started the walk from last time. Cheers.

    Thanks for the invite, but unfortunately I am away until the weekend, but would like to do it some other time as by far my favourite part of the Mendips. Enjoy the walk and may see some of you tonight in Bath?
