Beautiful views over Barrow Gurney

Description

Barrow Gurney is a pretty village close to Barrow tanks, three artificial reservoirs which supply drinking water for Bristol. Public footpaths near the tanks have recently been restored and stiles have been replaced with kissing gates so access to this area is now easier.

Walk information Distance: Just over 4 miles Difficulty: medium-difficult depending on fitness, as there is a long uphill section up Dundry Hill. Some parts can get quite muddy so wellies are recommended, especially in winter. Duration: 2-3 hours at a leisurely pace Map: OS Explorer 154



Barrow Gurney is a pretty village close to Barrow tanks, three artificial reservoirs which supply drinking water for Bristol. Public footpaths near the tanks have recently been restored and stiles have been replaced with kissing gates so access to this area is now easier. From Barrow Street, next to the Prince’s Motto pub, take the first right, a small lane which veers uphill. This joins Hobbs Lane. Follow the Sustrans route 334 sign through the gate onto the traffic-free section of Hobbs Lane. Follow it all the way to the end and you will come out on the A38. Turn left onto this and cross the road carefully. The public footpath starts on your righthand side, opposite Lakeside Spas. Go through the kissing gate into the field, and veer to the right-hand corner, between the hedgerows.
