Short Town Walks

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.
