About this walk

A beautiful walk through woodland next to the Mells river. The area is steeped in industrial history and a site of special scientific interest. Popular for dogs in summer as the river is accessible and it is flat and the path is gravel but can get muddy and slippery in wet conditions. There are several paths and the main path goes to Mells, or the East Mendip Way is accessible going South.

    Absolutely beautiful walk that my dogs loved. We came across other walkers but not so many that it made it difficult with two very friendly dogs. I would advise wellies if it has been raining for sure.

    Lots of free parking, lots of trails, perfect river for the dogs to dip and an abundance of wild garlic.

    Lovely walk - my 3 dogs really enjoyed the water. Will be returning on a drier day as I really needed wellies but the rain didn’t stop play for the dogs 😊

    Lovely route along the riverside, plenty of shallow water for your dog to paddle in.
