Along the "Strawberry Line" to Sandford Stone - about 2.5 miles.
Start at the Millennium Green. Walk north (away from the bridge). Preserved just off the platform are many of the original railway features picked out in original bricks. In spring and summer there are many wild flowers here that are typical of disused railway tracks. Keep going along the track, over the Accommodation Bridge, and along what was once the railway's embankment to pass ‘The Grove’ on your right, before returning to the track. Further along you will come to two bridges built of Triassic conglomerate, as are several of Winscombe's older buildings. The track eventually leads you to the borders of St Monica's retirement home where, pleasingly, the former station has been preserved in Great Western colours - and is worth a visit. click here.
On leaving the entrance to St Monica's retirement home, turn right and walk along the main road towards Sandford Village. Before reaching The Railway Inn (pop in, perhaps, for refreshment) turn right, opposite Thatcher's Cider, and walk along footpath 78 (see area map above). The footpath eventually turns sharp left onto Hill Road. Two diversions are then possible - the roadway to the left would take you to The Church of All Saints: the other, the roadway just opposite, would take you a few yards along Quarry Road to see our disused lime kilns, on the left and in the undergrowth. If neither appeals to you, turn right along Hill Road and then Sandford Road back to Winscombe's Woodborough Inn for some more refreshment - click here.
