Walk description:

Starting for the car park, come out of the car park and turn left, cross over St. James Street and head up Harvey's Road before turning off to walk along South Street. Continue along South Street until Hele Lane on the right and cross over South Street and walk down Hele Lane. Follow the lane as it bends round to the right and past the ford (you don't have to walk through the ford, there is a pavement which takes you over the water). Continue along Hele Lane until you come to a crossroads. At the crossroads go straight over and take Crown Lane and follow to Palmer Street. Turn right and follow to cross over North Street and then turn right to walk along St. James Street. Take the first turning on the left, Silver Street and walk up Silver Street. Keep heading uphill crossing over Mare Lane and just after that cross over Silver Street and walk along Lightgate Road. Then turn up St Michael's Gardens and head up this road and continue as the road bends round to the right and continue to walk ahead as the road follows a dog leg before coming out onto the lane which turns into Lightgate Lane. Continue down the lane crossing over Lightgate Road at the bottom and continue ahead down Roundwell Street until you are back to the car park.


Additional notes:

There are pubs and cafes in South Petherton if you should wish to enjoy any refreshments.
