Frome Valley

This walk is a mixture of woodland and road walking and is not suitable for wheelchairs or pushchairs. Please note this walk can get very muddy in the winter months and is best avoided if there is flooding as the river levels can get very high. On this walk you can expect to see lots of wildlife, particularly river birds and diverse flora and fauna of an established woodland.

Begin this woodland walk at the bottom of Mill Road. Pass over the bridge with the Frome River beneath. There is no path across the bridge so take care as you approach.

The Frome Valley Walkway, is over the bridge, to the left and is signposted. With the horse stables behind you, turn left and walk into the woods.

Walk along the track with the river on your lefr. Take care as the river is quite a drop from the track. Notice the flow sounds and light change as you enter the woodland.

Follow the river until you reach a small metal bridge on your left, cross over the bridge.

Turn right up the hill following the main footpath.

Follow the path to the right and walk alongside the houses on your left up on to the road, The Dingle.

When you reach The Dingle turn left and follow the narrow road up the hill with the river on below you to your left and the houses alongside you to your right. Take care on this road as there is one way traffic coming down the hill.

Continue along The Dingle which becomes Stone Lane and then becomes Church Road.

Travel all the way along Church Road, past the All Saints Church Hall on your right until you reach a turning on the left to take you down Mill Steps.

Come out at the bottom of Mill Steps, turn right and you will find yourself back where you started just off Mill Road.
