It is a walk for the more able and adventurous. It was rather muddy and slippery under foot and made the climbing up the gorge a little unsteady at times, and with a young child a little tricky, but the nature, views and overall experience...More

There is a small car park right by the gorge but it can be visited also as part of longer walks from Wells. It is looked after by the National Trust. A quiet spot with different walks depending upon your fitness levels.

Visited in April and area relatively quiet. Lovely walk through the gorge - muddy in places so walking shoes best. Some quite steep slopes with one section where you have to physically climb up to get through so you'd need to be reasonably fit to...More
