Clutton - Limestone Link - Ridings Farm - Three Peaks Walk - Clutton

You start by the church in the village of Clutton. Leave the village and join the Limestone Link, which you follow through attractive Mendip Edge countryside for a couple of miles. From there, more countryside takes you up through more fields and footpaths to join the Limestone Link which returns you to the start.

We did this just before Christmas and thought it would be extremely pleasant in the summer. I hope someone lets us know!

Nice walk thanks, I did this earlier today on a hot July day. Directions are very good but as you point out a number of electric fences blocking footpaths, also in the second half of the walk at this time of year some of the paths and kissing gates are buried in deep nettles and hard to get through. I enjoyed it though. If you are interested in Industrial Archeology then there is a great addition to this walk about half a mile from waypoint 12. As you come up the steps to the road turn right instead of left for a hundred yards or so then turn left onto the road into the Paulton Sewage Works (really!) and follow this until you get to the main gate, take the footpath immediately to the left of the gate and follow the perimeter fence. Keep following the main path as it turns right 90degrees and then cross over the stream on the metal bridge and kissing gate. The lakes in front of you look natural but aren't - they are the Paulton and Timsbury basins of the old Somersetshire Coal Canal which went out of use in 1898. If you go to the right you will find the newly excavated canal dry dock and various information boards. You can follow much of the route of the old canal bed for 10 miles until it joins the Kennet and Avon canal at Dundas - but that's a whole new set of walks! Just retrace your steps back to waypoint 12 and continue with the walk. It's a diversion of about 1 mile in total to add this part but well worth it in my opinion.
