Cleeve and Goblin Combe Nature Reserve

Goblin Combe: I didn't see any goblins, but it has all the hallmarks of a combe: steep-sided valley, scree in one part, but tree-lined, mossy, with some fern. It is an SSSI I believe and certainly popular with dog-walkers (although this walk probably isn't suitable for them - see below).

The rest of the walk takes in fields below the village of Cleeve and Brockley Church, one of those places where you can't quite decide why it is so grand. It lies between Bristol and Weston-super-Mare on the A370.

Please bear in mind that the walk includes a number of stiles, a couple of moveable electric fences (as at July 2011), a fifty-yard stretch on a busy B road with no pavement, another fifty-yard stretch on the A370, although with pavement, the need to cross the A370 in two places and a couple of longish climbs into woodland (not too steep though).
There are no toilets on this route.
