Herepath

Herepath, Tea rooms closing and opening

The tea rooms at Hinam Farm near Dulverton and Pulhams Mill near Wimbleball Lake have both closed.  I have updated the relevant walks to remove reference to them. 

Some better news, Egans at Boeveys in Simonsbath has finally opened.  From my one visit [update - now several visits] so far I can recommend it.  It doesn't have a huge amount of room for large groups (there's some outdoor seating at the back), but the coffee and cake were excellent.  They also do light lunches.

I have also reorganised the information on the Herepath so that it is all on one pdf file and taken down the separate Herepath page.  The Herepath notes can be found here Herepathherepath.pdf, or via the Quantocks or Central Exmoor-North pages.

The Saxon herepath

I'm currently doing some research into the Saxon herepath (military road) that ran from south of Bristol via Combwich across the Quantocks and Exmoor.  This will be published as a pdf leaflet, probably not a detailed walk description but a suggested route for following the herepath as closely as is permitted by current rights of way.  The best parts for walking are between Combwich (on the River Parrett) and Elworthy on the edge of the Brendons, then from Summerway Cross up to Exford, over the moors and down to Worthy near Porlock.  The middle section roughly follows the top road on the Brendons - so it is not ideal for walking, as this is a fast and fairly busy ten-mile stretch of tarmac. 

UPDATE The Herepath information is now in pdf form on the site: Herepathherepath.pdf.
