Walked from Bridgewater out to the boat and anchor pub which was just short of two miles. It's a lovely peaceful walk with good terrain. Not busy at all, canal looks a bit neglected in parts but still beautiful for the most part.

I live just off the Taunton and Bridgwater Canal and either walk or cycle on the towpath regularly. Whatever the season it offers a peaceful, colourful wildlife experience. Don't miss the opportunity of exploring this unspoilt piece of Somerset.

Follow the signs to this rather secluded spot! Plenty of parking and a great picnic area with table and seats. Straight onto canal towpath . Well kept with a wonderful show of daffodils. Cyclists walkers and canoeists enjoying this spot as well as walkers and dogs. Very friendly visitors and a real gem of a place. Ideal place to start a walk either to Taunton or Bridgwater . It was a nice day and a very pleasant couple of hours spent looking at fauna flora and wildlife. Very relaxing.

1. DO NOT attempt to park at North Newton, the locals I met on New years day were not too friendly, especially the ones behind the steering wheel of a car...whose love of tourists leaves a lot to be desired...about 1 mile from North Newton there is a car park by the side of the towpath (at least this section) and we walked in the direction of "Cheech St Michael" on a lovely day and most enjoyable with lots of other walkers, folks with dogs, folks on their bikes enjoying a crisp January morning...well worth it to come and see the variety of scenery in the area. Sadly loos were locked and bolted, so on a bank holiday improvising is necessary (maybe more difficult for the ladies). the café would have done a real good trade today

14.5 miles of towpath. Easy to get a regular bus to any end of the towpath without much effort. Good for: 1. Running, very flat except for the occasional bridge. 2. Wildlife watching, Kingfishers, Water Voles, Buzzards, many fish species, Dragonflies, Roe Deer, Grass Snakes. 3. Views - Brilliant views across the Somerset Levels, flooded in winter; Burrow Mump, Glastonbury Tor, The Bronze Age bank at Lyng to keep the floods in one area, Rhynes and their associated flowers, Burton Pynsent Monument. There is so much to see. 4. Fishing. 5. Canal Boats. 6. Tea Rooms at Maunsel Lock at Bankland to refresh you as you complete the 29 mile run you have always wanted to achieve. 7. Visit North Newton, brilliant church and school. Just keep it quiet.
