|North Cadbury and Woolston|
|Author: , Published: 04 May 2013||Walk rating : Rating:|
|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.
|Start to Footbridge|
Start point: 51.0485 lat, -2.5216 long
Start walking down farm drive, then bear left onto footpath which takes you between two fences. Walk along right edge of field to gate and on to reach a footbridge over a stream.
|Footbridge to Corkscrew Lane|
Start point: 51.0495 lat, -2.5234 long
Go right after crossing footbridge over stream. After following footpath along river, climb over stile and through field to another stile in far right corner. Turn right onto road and then left through gate into next field.
|Corkscrew Lane to Tree Belt|
Start point: 51.0552 lat, -2.5163 long
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
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.
|Woolstone Road to Concrete Road|
Start point: 51.0479 lat, -2.5055 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
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.

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.

I do a lot of solo walking...so always worry about safety and getting lost.....not anymore I don't...!!!!! The guides are always spot on....and that's what I do.just follow the blue spot...!!! Thank you.... It's my favourite app...!!!!
My wife and I did your Petworth and Shimmings Valley walk yesterday. It was absolutely beautiful and enhanced by the wonderful weather. Your instructions were the clearest I have ever used for walking.
Without doubt the best app that I have ever downloaded! - NT
This App is brilliant. It enables you to track your walks and download them for future reference. The Library provides you with a variety of walks and are supported by clear instructions and photographs along the route. This makes them very easy to follow. I have used the App for about two years and have found it invaluable. Should you have any queries about any aspect of iFootpath the support you get is second to none.
Absolutely beautiful walk, and a wonderful app. Thank you so much :)
I want to congratulate you on your web site/app performance, quick, reliable and easy to use. I have similar walking apps with OS Maps and ViewRanger but yours is best.
This app has totally changed my life, i absolutely love it. I did this walk yesterday, what a beautiful walk it is, i thoroughly enjoyed it and would definitely do it again, in fact i met an older gentleman who was on his 100 and something time there!! My sister and daughter cant wait to come along. The noise mentioned about the motorway is negligible and for me did not detract from the overall walk at all, the view from the top was stunning!!
So far I have downloaded 5 walks and completed 3 of them, tomorrow will be No 4. I love your website The walk descriptions are the best I have used in the last six years of rambling since I retired. This is a website I would be more than happy to pay a subscription for, instead I'll donate a sum to my favourite charity. THANK YOU.
Have deleted Pokemon Go and downloaded @ifootpathuk which is much more 'me'
I love the illustrated descriptions of each walk section. Really helps to enjoy the walk and get to know something about what I'm seeing. So much better than apps that only provide GPS co-ordinates and no photos or description. Love it!
After trying out numerous other apps I came across this one: way ahead of any of the others in every way. Much more accurate and very easy to use with great features. Would highly recommend it as THE app to use for walking.
Just wonderful, with walks for everyone: the fit, the not-so-fit, short walks, long walks, through woods, up hills (and down).
I highly recommend it, as my mum and I use it to go for walks and finish by eating at a pub. Its detailed and sometimes humorous instructions lead us easily to our destination. Also, to top this, it has interesting facts about the area we're walking in
I don't review much but this app deserves it. Downloaded some really good walks and the combination of the good descriptions and the really useful map of the walk showing where you are make it a brilliant tool. Well done and keep up the good work.
Very enjoyable and well described route. Views over the river from the warren were stunning.
Fantastic walk and amazing views. Great directions though I followed the GPS map mainly
Great walk, instructions were very detailed, perfect!
This may be the best walk I've ever done. It was certainly the best directions.
Even on a cold windy day with it trying to snow this was still an excellent walk. We managed it with our 2 children of 5 yrs and one in a all terain pram (a defo no no with a normal pram). Will be doing this one again in the summer.
Used app while visiting (it was great!)--live in Texas. Thanks!
Your app and walks are a dream to use
Did this walk this morning with our three little girls and we all love it. Great day outdoor!
