Walk the Somerset Space Walk 6.8 miles

  • December 8, 2013 · 11:00 AM

Hi all. A very relaxed walk with a difference. And some nice pubs en route. http://www.somerset.gov.uk/irj/go/km/docs/CouncilDocuments/SCC/Documents/Environment/Countryside%20and%20Coast/Somerset%20Space%20walk.pdf
The walk will be flat and easy so all levels of fitness welcomed!

    Looking forward to our Space Walk tomorrow. We can decide on the pub tomorrow. Barbara, Phil and myself will meet at the YMCA car park at 10.40am and then drive back to 'The Sun'. Bring a sarnie and we can eat under a planet. My mobile in case you've not got it: 07855 698057. See you all tomorow! Phil is one lucky man. ;-)

    Hi all! I've finally managed to find out where 'Pluto' is in Bridgwater. If I can have two volunteers to meet me in the YMCA car park in Bridgwater at 10.40, we can then leave two cars there so we can all safely get back to 'The Sun' after our walk. It looks like stopping for some sarnies is the preferred option, but if anyone wants a coffee or a pint afterwards we can choose one of the pubs close by. I know there is a pub in North Newton. Jo

    Have printed out the info leaflet. Could you give me directions to get to Maunsel Lock where the Sun is please. I will be driving from Dawlish up the M5. I presume I take the Taunton Turn off but need directions from there. Ta.

      Thanks Hilary. Will use postcode to get there. I presume there's ample parking nearby?

      December 4, 2013

  • Jo W.

    We will meet at 'the sun'. I need to sort getting a car at 'Pluto' to take drivers back to their car. Will post again before the end of the week when we know how many will be going. Mo and Hilary I presume that you are both driving?

      Mo, I'd rather just have a cuppa together at the end and sandwiches en route.

    Click on the link above to see the route. Not decided if we should walk to Taunton or Bridgy yet. Both ways are 6.8 miles.

  • Hilary B.

    Ok, I'm in! Where are we meeting?

    November 23, 2013

  • mo o.

    how about just having tea togather at the end? Personally not too keen on 'Late Lunch', Im better off having a sandwich en route.

    November 21, 2013

  • Jo W.

    Hi Hilary, well, as the route is flat I would imagine it wouldn't take longer than 2.5 hrs? I've not done it myself and it may depend on how long we look at the planets for! We need to put a car at the other end of the walk to take drivers back so I would suggest 3 hours would be OK. We will be having a late lunch somewhere that serves all day, not sure where yet. I hope you can come. Jo

    I would like to come but am not sure if I'm free yet as my eldest might have other plans for volleyball and may need Mum's taxi service. Any idea what time the walk will finish?
