Walks on Dundry Hill book
The Dundry Hill Group were busy during early 2001 walking the area to find routes to be included in the Walks on Dundry Hill book.

Ten interesting walks have been chosen; for each one there is a route description, map, and information on history, geology, archaeology and interesting sights along the way.

The walks take you along ancient lanes, past the Iron Age hill settlement of Maes Knoll, through ancient woodland at Bitham's Wood, through farmland, past rivers and streams and to places where you can admire the breathtaking views of area.

The Group recruited local residents, school groups, walking clubs and anyone with an interest in walking or the area to help write and check routes and information.

There is a range of walks from easy to hard, circular to linear, and from short to long. The book is beautifully illustrated with Anton Bantock's line drawings and additional information is included on local wildlife, history and facilities such as pubs, shops and bus stops.

There is also be a report form for people to fill in to help us address any difficulties that they may find.

The book has been produced with the help of North Somerset County Council, Bristol City Council and Bath, North East Somerset Council and The Forest of Avon.

Walks on Dundry Hill is now out of print, but we know that it has been available at some local libraries, so try asking!
