Strawberry Line (Yatton to Chard)
This splendid walk and cycle path runs along a former railway line that used to transport strawberries from Cheddar.
You start by Yatton railway station and head south passing Congresbury and Axbridge before finishing in Cheddar. The route passes apple orchards, open fields and the River Yeo while there are also pleasant woodland sections at King's Wood and Rose Wood. Also on the route is the delightful Millennium Green at Winscombe (perfect place to stop for lunch!) and the tranquil Cheddar reservoir at the end of the route.
If you have time you could continue up to the magnificent Cheddar Gorge and see this spectacular natural wonder.
N.B - Between Wednesday 2nd September 2015 & Tuesday 15th September 2015, the Strawberry Line between Weston Road & Drove Way (Nye Road) will be closed to all recreational users (including all cyclists, walkers and joggers) to enable the safe delivery of material to the Carditch Drove Solar Farm development.
