Fifth Somerset Secret Seawalk Circular Walk Around Brean Down

May 8, 2017 Destination Europe No Comments Email Email

The fifth Secret Sea Walk along the undiscovered Somerset coastline focuses on the area around BreanDown.

Brean Down stretches 1½ miles (2 km) into the Bristol Channel at the eastern end of Bridgwater, close to the most westerly part of the Mendip Hills. People have lived, worked and fought on the Down since the Bronze Age and archaeological highlights include the remains of an ancient Romano-Celtic temple and a Victorian fort.

Rich in wildlife, the Down is also a Site of Special Scientific Interest for both its geological significance and the presence of nationally rare plants including the white rock-rose.

The walk is part of a ten-week campaign to inspire walkers to get out and discover new ‘secret sea walks’ each week.  A new walk will be published each week on the Visit Somerset website:

This project is funded by Natural England and the Hinkley Tourism Action Partnership made up of EDF Energy, Somerset County Council, Sedgemoor District Council, West Somerset Council, Visit Somerset, Exmoor National Park Authority and Visit Exmoor.
