Colliers Way

Discover the hidden valleys and byways of north somerset, where Roman legions once marched, miners toiled underground and coal and wool were the currency of success.

Tracing the route of old railways and quiet lanes, this relaxing and mainly traffic-free environment is excellent for walking and cycling, with large sections suitable for wheelchair users and some where horse-riding is allowed.
