Enjoy spectacular views and historic landscapes on the southern edge of Bristol, spreading into the Chew Valley.
Highlights include the attractive village of Dundry, the spectacular Iron Age fort of Maes Knoll, the pretty riverside walk from Norton Malreward to North Wick and the scenic climb back up to Dundry. Total length is about 8 miles. It is ‘moderately difficult’. There are two or three challenging slopes, but only the climb back up to Dundry, towards the end of the walk, is prolonged. The pace will be moderate, with regular rests.
The starting point is near to the Dundry Inn, which you can see as you approach the start. The pub serves a full range of food and refreshments; and should be open before and after the walk. The proprietors will be alerted, but please make your own advance bookings direct on 0117 964 1722. There are no other opportunities for buying refreshments or toilet facilities on the walk itself.
The walk is Walk 18 in the leader’s best-selling publication ‘Beyond Bristol: 24 Country Walks’ (Redcliffe Press, 2017). This includes a varied range of walks of between 6 and 11 miles, all within easy reach of Bristol, and retails at £15. Signed copies of the books will be available for purchase at the end of the walk.
Numbers will be restricted to 25.
