Take a wander around the tranquil woodland of Goblin Combe and spot rare ferns and beautiful butterflies in the shady undergrowth. From the parking area, turn right into Plunder Street and go past the old school building. Follow the footpath sign down the driveway towards Walnut Tree Farm. Go through the gate marked The Congresbury Estate and ‘Footpath to Wrington only’. Keep on this stone track, into Cleeve Wood. Goblin Combe is a limestone gorge. About 200 million years ago it was dry desert but torrential rainstorms and flash floods created waterfalls which wore away the rock. Millions of years later, this process was repeated when snow melted following the Ice Age.
