Walking & Walking Routes in Taunton Deane

You can find information about our series of circular walks here. Whether you are a visitor or a resident of Taunton Deane, these can help you to better understand and enjoy our local landscape.

These short trails give you time to discover the history and landscape of the area. Each walk is described in detail so that you shouldn't need an ordnance survey map. The route is clearly shown on the leaflet and marked along the route (download from the offers/info tab).

The circular trails are open to everyone. People with disabilities or special needs may want to check the leaflet for length and difficulty of the walk. Please remember to follow the Country Code.
