  • The Mendip Way combines two previously separate paths; the West Mendip Way and The East Mendip Way, and traverses the full range of the Mendip Hills. Starting on the Somerset coast, by the tiny church at Uphill, it explores the broad vales and high ridges of the western Mendip, the central high limestone plateau around Priddy, Cheddar and Charterhouse, and the small wooded combes to the east of Wells. The walk finishes in the ancient market town of Frome.

  • Highlights of the walk include the exhilarating ridges of Bleadon Hill, Crook Peak and Wavering Down with their far reaching views across the Bristol Channel to South Wales; the magnificent cliffs of Cheddar Gorge; the attractive villages of Priddy, Shipham and Draycott; and the historic city of Wells which provides a great base for this tour.

  • The Mendip Way is almost exactly 50 miles long and runs from Weston super Mare to Frome. The western section runs from the Bristol Channel at Uphill and in places affords fine views over the Somerset Levels. It crosses the central Mendip plateau leading down to the spectacular Cheddar Gorge before eventually taking in the beautiful city of Wells. Between Wells and Frome the landscape changes with open hilltops replaced by deep secluded valleys

A publication "Uphill to Frome : a guide to The Mendip Way" by David Wright is available from Tourist Information offices.
