This is a really fabulous walk. It's long for most people.
I walk from home in Midsomer Norton to Bath or to Frome. I prefer the route to Bath though there are some really interesting things to see on the way to Frome.
The walk runs along the Sustrans Route 24
It's a walk of two halves for me. Firstly through the countryside, through Wellow, for example. Beautiful!
The second half takes you along the canal into Bath from Brassknocker Basin.
I'd recommend a long lunch break or the feet can get very sore. It is a really interesting route to take, as this is the journey of the coal from NE Somerset into Bath. Now that may not sound too cool, but it really comes alive with the various signs en route that enlighten you. There are several very interesting things to read about along the way but I do not wish to spoil them, because they were a very pleasant surprise for me when I did it for the first time.
Very highly recommended...also by bike.
