A fairly hilly walk, but the view is well worth the climb ... also lovely pub in Wookey Village at the end!

Few Buses To Wookey Itself

You need to add on a couple of miles to the length of this walk. There don't seem to be direct buses to Wookey any more, although still plenty passing through nearby Wells.

What do you think?
