River Parrett Trail
80 km / 50 miles
A route which follows the River Parrett from source to mouth winding through the Somerset Levels, moors, ecologically sensitive areas and some of England's richest pasture land where there is an abundance of history and wildlife. The Trail crosses the Liberty Trail near Haselbury and Ham Hill, where it also meets up with the Leland Trail.
The original path route (and its guide book, which is now no longer available) could be accessed via the TIC in Yeovil and via a website. Now that Somerset have taken over the trail they have rationalised some of the alternative routes and changed the route north of Bridgwater to hug the river. All the changes have been carried out on the ground with improved stiles and new signnage, but no online or paper guides for it exists as yet.
This path coupled with the Brit Valley way creates a coast to coast walk which then joins with the SWCP and the West Somerset Coast Path which leads to the start of SWCP at Minehead.
The waymarked Brit Valley Way (11 miles) follows the River Brit from West Bay to Chedington.
