Walk description:

NB. There is a small section of the route that doesn't have a pavement and the road can be a little busy so please be careful of the traffic. The walk starts from the car park on the corner of St. James Street and Prigg Lane. Come out of the car park and turn left to walk down Prigg Lane, take the footpath at the end to cut the corner and then turn left to head up Silver Street. At the top of Silver Street turn right and walk to North Street. Then cross over North Street and head up Palmer Street. After a short distance cross over Palmer Street and walk along George Lane, the pedestrian lane that brings you out in the square. At the square turn right and walk round in front of the church and then turn left down Hele Lane. Walk along Hele Lane past the ford (there is a pavement which you can walk along so that you don't have to walk through the ford). Continue to follow the lane until you reach the end on South Street. Turn right onto South Street and follow round till you reach Cole Lane on the left. Turn up Cole Lane and walk to the top where you reach Hayes End. Cross over Hayes End and turn left to walk along Hayes End till you reach the crossroads. Cross over Harvey's Road and continue along Lightgate Road. This is the section without a pavement so please be careful of the traffic. Continue to the end of Lightgate Road, cross over Silver Street and turn left to head down hill. Take the first turning on the left into Prigg Lane and back to the car park.


Additional notes:

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