Walk with Chrissie along the 30-mile stretch of the wonderful West Mendip Way. Starting in Uphill, Weston-super-Mare, it climbs the Mendip escarpment affording views over the Somerset Levels. It then crosses the central Mendip plateau leading down to Cheddar Gorge and on to Wells, the smallest city in England.
Most of the western section is within the Mendip Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty - a stunning landscape of steep slopes and undulating plateau, punctuated by spectacular gorges and rocky outcrops. On the hilltops, there are hundreds of ancient monuments, whilst on steeper slopes flower rich grasslands and wooded combes offer varied habitats for a wide variety of wildlife.
The walking will be spread over 4 days and you will be taken to and from the start and finish points every day by taxi from your base at the very lovely Gordon's Hotel, perfectly situated at the foot of the famous Cheddar Gorge. And there's also a pool for a post walk dip, what luxury!
