WALKS OVER BRENT KNOLL

A foot bridge at the end of the orchard gardens afords guests access to fields and over Brent Knoll.

Guests enjoy strolling through the fields to observe the cattle or sheep when they are there. It also presents a shorter route to the top than the public right of way, although it is a steeper route.

A footpath opposite the farm gate leads to the Church where a more gentle slope leads to the top

SUMMIT OF BRENT KNOLL

The top of the knoll enjoys panoramic views of the Mendip Hills, Somerset Levels and the coastline across to Wales.

During the Iron Age the summit of the knoll was a hill fort and the earth banks which formed the sides of the fort can still be seen today.

FOOTPATH TO VILLAGE GREEN & PLAY AREA

Opposite the main entrance to the cottages is a footpath which leads across to the village green and play area, where there is a small child's playground and a larger village green with goal posts for a game of football.

FOOTPATH TO EAST BRENT CHURCH

At the end of Jarvis Lane, a footpath runs to East Brent Church. The Church of St Mary The Virgin was built in the late thirteenth Century with the Spire being added about a century later.

Behind the churchyard is a cemetery which back's onto Hill Lane. A short walk along Hill Lane will take you to Ralph's Wood.

RALPH'S WOOD
