Comprising the West Mendip (30 miles) and the East Mendip (19 miles) Ways, there was involvement in their creation by Rotary Club members. The Mendip Way is almost 50 miles long with over 6000ft of ascent 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, on the eastern section, the landscape changes, with open hilltops replaced by deep secluded valleys.
The Strawberry Line (10 miles and on OS mapping) follows the Cheddar Valley Railway from Yatton to Cheddar built in 1869 to carry strawberries from Cheddar.
