A Walk to the top of Brent Knoll

If you have arrived by car, park in Church Road and proceed by foot to the Churchyard gate.

Go through gate and turn immediately left and follow path to the metal gate adjacent to the school, go through this and follow the footpath all the way around the school playing field to a wooden gate.

Go through and cross a field in a SW direction for 40 yds to a stile. Climb over the stile and proceed up the hill, following the defined footpath, to a metal 'kissing gate', go through and carry on up hill to a stile, from here you will see the flagpole on the top of Brent Knoll.

Proceed to the top to get an amazing 360 degree panoramic view of North Somerset, with views to the North of the Mendip Hills, to the East of Glastonbury Tor, to the West of the Bristol Channel and to the South of the Polden and Quantock Hills.

Please be aware that there may be cattle or sheep in some of the fields so please take care and keep dogs under control.
