Wonderful five village walk encompassing Barrington, East Lambrook, South Petherton, Compton Durville and Shepton Beauchamp. Best done on a nice summer's day. Parts of the walk can get very muddy, so appropriate footwear is a must. There are infrequent buses to Barrington, and more regular buses to South Petherton, so you could start and finish the walk there.
