A 3 mile walk around the lanes and fields of North Cadbury, a lovely little village in South Somerset. Ideal for dog walking, although you may come across farm animals in some of the fields. The walk is relatively flat, there are several gates and stiles and the route can be very muddy after wet weather.

North Cadbury is just off the A303 between the Wincanton and Yeovil turn offs.

After a little way on this road you will come to a stile on the right. Cross the stile into the field and go diagonally left to reach the left hand boundary. Cross over another stile and veer right through this field. Follow the left hand boundary to the next stile that will take you into some trees.

Tree Belt to Woolstone Road

Start point: 51.0511 lat, -2.5106 long
End point: 51.0479 lat, -2.5055 long

Follow the path through the trees and then as you emerge follow the footpath along the right hand edge of field. Turn right into next field, then keep on the left following the edge of fields until you reach Woolston Road.

End point: 51.0437 lat, -2.5139 long

Turn right onto road, and then at the fork bear left. Follow straight along this road. As the road bends hard left, turn off road into field. Go straight with hedge on your left, then turn right onto a path which goes between two fields with no boundary. Keep following this track which becomes a concrete road.

Concrete Road to End

Start point: 51.0437 lat, -2.5139 long
End point: 51.0485 lat, -2.5217 long

Follow the concrete road and you will come to Woolston Road again ahead. Cross over Woolston Road and go over a stile into next field directly opposite. Keep ahead and at the end of this field turn right and follow the concrete road. After walking a field length on the concrete road, turn left into field.

Walk along right hand field edge, and half way along bear left away from the boundary to reach a double stile in the far boundary. Go over the double stile and walk through next field with border on your left. Go through a small gate then back onto the road. Go left for just a few paces to reach the start point of the walk. If you need a drink you can continue up the road to reach the Catash Inn.

The written directions were difficult to follow. We found that following the GPS tracker dot was the easiest method. Also it would be good to have a grid reference or better instructions on the starting point and where we could park.
