The walk down through the middle of the gorge involves clambering down some steep rock ravines. It was dry for us but could be difficult when wet.

We walked a circular route from Wells that took in the Gorge. It was easy to climb and well sign posted through the Gorge. Include in any walk in the area.

Great circular walk of about 4.5 miles, takes you through fields, woodland and the gorge, make sure you checkout the viewpoint before descending through the gorge

Difficult to find but well worth it. There are three marked walks with different levels of accessibility/difficulty. We selected the challenging route which entailed some clambering up rocky paths but the view from the top of the gorge definitely made up for it.

This is NOT a walk for people who are at all infirm. We did this walk with our dog in March and even though it had not rained, a lot of the steps and walks were muddy and slippery. Also, some of the rocky slopes...More
