Walk description:

Wincanton Buggy Walk

30-40 minutes route walking at an adults pace/60-75 minutes route walking with toddlers

1. Start at the Memorial Hall and carefully walk through the car park to the back of Green Dragon Antiques passing the Balsam Centre and the Children’s Centre. Walk through the second section of the car park (with one further section of the car park remaining) toward the High Street and take the footpath off to the left following the footpath in front of Angel Villas. At the footpath junction turn left and walk down the alleyway heading away from the High Street.
2. Follow the alleyway to Balsam Park and at the bottom of the alleyway cross over Balsam Park and walk on the other side of the road downhill towards Balsam Fields. When you reach Balsam Fields cross over the road and take the footpath that continues ahead. At the bottom of the footpath you reach another footpath, turn left and follow the footpath.
3. Follow the footpath all the way along, past the garages into Mundays Mead. At Mundays Mead turn right and follow the road as it goes around the corner. Look for the footpath on the right between house number 46 and house number 48 and take the footpath.
4. Follow the footpath as it turns to the left and comes out on a lane, follow the lane until you reach Bramble View and continue straight ahead on the pavement until you reach Common Road. At Common Road turn left and walk up hill crossing Mundays Mead and Balsam Fields.
5. After crossing Balsam Fields take the footpath continuing up Common Road in front of the houses rather than the pavement next to the road. At the top of the hill follow the footpath round to the left and onto Balsam Close. Follow Balsam Close round to the right passing the parking area on the left and Cherry Tree Court on the right. Continue on the footpath ahead, which brings you back out at the Memorial Hall.
