Quantock Hills Walk
Lydeard Hill to Wills Neck
Walk Route Description
From the car park take the cattle gate on the west side and take the gravel track keeping the fence on your immediate left. Follow this path across Lydeard Hill and then down an incline where another cattle gate takes you into unenclosed land with Bagborough Plantation on the left and views down Aisholt Common on your right.
At the west end of the plantation the path begins to climb (ignore any paths off left or right) and the views begin to open up on both sides as you move onto the open moorland proper.
A stroll of about half a mile up a gradual incline brings you to the trig point on the summit of Wills Neck, the highest point of the Quantock Hills with views all round - the Bristol Channel and South Wales to the north, Glastonbury, Wells and the Somerset Levels to the east and the Blackdown and Brendon Hills with Exmoor behind to the south and west.
Return to the car park by the same route.
Please maintain social distancing - keep at least 2 metres away from other walkers.
