Climb to Lydeard Hill in the Quantocks an enjoy splendid views over the surrounding countryside on this short circular walk.
You can start your walk from the Lydeard Hill car park on Lydeard Hill Road. It's a good sized parking area with great views, located just a mile east of the village of West Bagborough. From here you can pick up the footpaths to the hill summit which is a short distance from the car park. Head through the gate and then follow the wide paths to the hill top. You can then continue around the hill where there are nice woodland sections and open countryside to enjoy.
You can extend your walk by picking up the Samaritans Way South West and following it to the nearby Wills Neck and Cothelstone Hill.
