About the Event

Please read all event information before attending:

Event Information:

The Quantock Hills west of Bridgwater in Somerset, England, consist of heathland, oak woodlands, ancient parklands and agricultural land. They were England's first Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, designated in 1956. This loop takes in a huge amount of the beautiful area. It is only one hour away from Bristol, so this is not one to miss!

The meeting point is on Crowcombe Road, Over Stowey, Bridgewater. If you search for 'Dead Womans Ditch', you should find it!
