Parrett, Drove and Cocklemoor Walk

All Walks start and end at the Whatley Car Park

In wet weather the paths and tracks can be very muddy and , except in prolonged dry weather, you will need hiking boots or wellies. In very wet weather there will probably be flooding.

Note: Be careful if there are cattle with calves in fields that you cross. Keep dogs well under control and please leave gates as you found them.

There are several very pleasant pubs, restaurants and cafes in Langport town centre if you feel like some refreshments after your walk. 

Parrett, Drove and Cocklemoor Walk​

About 2.5kms / 1.5 miles

Go south to the Parrett Trail on the river bank and turn left, follow the path to Huish Bridge (700m) and turn right over the bridge. 

Whilst on the bridge you can see on your left a tributary joining the river Prrett.

This is the Yeo which comes from Ilchester, a Roman Town (Lindiniae) on the Fosse Way.

After the bridge, turn right on the Huish Drove and after 900m turn right through some bike gates. Along the path and through the Industrial Estate (400m).

Turn right after Shakespeare Glass, and go over the footbridge to take the route back to Whatley, either along Bow Street or the Cocklemoor riverbank footpath. (500m)
