A pub walk, the quickest way to walk to Batcombe (other than along the road) and a good way of shortening other longer routes. Easy, and about 3 1/2 miles each way.

Batcombe: the long way round

This new walk is the longest walk on the site, using less well-known routes to visit Batcombe and return via Milton Clevedon and Lamyatt. The possibility of seeing hare and deer, the certainty of good views and a pub just before the halfway mark make this a good day out. Because of its length this cannot be considered a beginner’s walk. 9 miles (14.5km), 3 hours 30 minutes to 4 hours 15 minutes, moderate.
