Tyntesfield - Edge of Nailsea - Stone-edge-Batch - Chummock Wood - Bullock's Bottom - Charlton Drive - Tyntesfield

Starting from the car park at Tyntesfield, head off through woodland then, leaving the estate, cross fields to the edge of the small town of Nailsea, before a stretch alongside a stream leads you to Stone-edge-Batch. Take care on a bit of busy main road before heading over more fields take you to Chummock Wood. Climb through the wood to more fields, passing the interesting Naish House (presumably a fortified manor-house at one time?). You briefly get views of the Severn Estuary and Wales before cutting through Prior's Wood (famed for its bluebells). Leave the wood for a stretch on a school drive before heading out across a couple of lanes and drives, then returning to the main entrance for Tyntesfield.

I went on this walk yesterday to recce if ahead of a group walk. I had several problems. Firstly, at point 11 the farmer has put up electric fencing preventing you from getting to the path. He has also locked up a couple of the gates so you have to scramble over them instead. Secondly, the stretch of road walking at point 15 is incredibly dangerous. It is a very busy road (I walked on a sunday afternoon and met a lot of traffic) with fast moving traffic. There is no verge to walk along or even a gutter so you have to walk on the carriageway. The road is also not wide enough for vehicles to be able to go around you if something is coming in the other direction. This meant that four cars had to come to a stop on separate occasions and wait to go around me. Add in the hairpin bend that means drivers can't see you until they are virtually on top of you and this stretch was terrifying. I'm lucky not to have been hit! The second half of the walk was enjoyable but I certainly won't be doing it again with the group. Not prepared to put other people's safety at risk on that road. Finally, this walk is listed as being 6.5 miles. My own GPS put it at 8 miles.
