Trying out the Walk

Last week my friend and I did a "trial run" or should I say walk for our walking group. It is quite important for someone to test the route prior to the group walking it to check for any problems, detours etc. It was just as well as we managed to take the wrong way twice!
It looks to be a promising walk following the River Chew.

We have sussed a coffee stop in Chew Magna and even a scarecrow to see on route.

There will hopefully be time to look around the church.

And to admire the Autumn colours.

Everyone is always keen to know how many stiles there are. This walk is well blessed with kissing gates which are easier to manage. There is one stile.

It is not compulsory but they can use it if they are feeling left out!
 The climb towards the end is rewarded with fabulous views.

Then the last stretch gives views across the Chew Valley Lake.

I think they will enjoy it and the fish and chips which of course we tried out!


  1. Very pleasant. (I think I spotted the Loch Chew Monster!)

  2. Looks brilliant, wish we had those opportunities in the US. I really took footpaths for granted until we moved!
