The River Parrett Trail


The River Parrett Trail is a fantastic long distance walking route, following the river for 50 miles from its source near Chedington in the Dorset hills, through tranquil Somerset countryside to its mouth at Steart point on the Bristol Channel. It passes through many pretty South Somerset hamstone villages, market towns and the ancient historic sites of Ham Hill, Muchelney and Burrow Mump.

Visit South Somerset are working together with other partners to improve the River Parrett Trail and looking forward to bringing you improved pathways and upgraded signage together with refreshed materials, all free to download. Coming soon! 

In the meantime, you can refer to for the section walks.
