Buckland Dinham – 18.2.18

February 20, 2018 at 7:29 am

This walk starts in the village of Buckland Dinham then heads into the Somerset countryside through Great Elm and on towards Mells where the hills above the village give good views of the historic manor house and church. A good variety of walking with open fields and meadows, riverside paths and bridleways thick with mud. Signs of spring everywhere with snowdrops, daffodils in bud and wild garlic starting to appear.

the walk started from The Bell Inn – recognisable by the pygmy goats and flying bicycle in the car park

Don’t forget to say hello to the goats

The views are still wintry out there …

… but you know Spring is on the way when the woods start to smell of garlic

Lunch stop by the Mells River

The deep dark mossy woods

This cute little waterfall is actually a water outlet from Whatley quarry which features in our Nunney walk.  You can see both walks on this map below, today’s walk in red and the Nunney Walk in blue
