Photo Walk: Short Route July 12.07.23

Published by Jon Barrett on

Join our Quantock Hills July Photo Walk Short Route, a circular walk, from Bridgwater, including visits along the canal to The Meads and back to the Bridgwater Arts Centre to see the latest exhibition by WWT which includes photographs taken by some of our membership.

We’ll stop for refreshments along the way and have a chance to enjoy nibbles and refreshments at the arts centre to toast the exhibition.

On our Quantock Hills Photo Walks it doesn’t matter if you don’t have a fancy camera or technical expertise, it’s about appreciating your surroundings and finding somewhere in nature that you can immerse yourself. The camera is a fantastic tool to encourage you to slow down and focus your attention, it’s a mindfulness exercise and can be a very relaxing process.

Our Short Route Photo Walk is for anyone who would like a dose of nature, but would like to spend a while enjoying each stage of the journey on foot. It’s a slow walk, so perhaps you need a little longer to frame and compose your shot, or you need plenty of time to walk the route. We’ll all walk with each other at a relaxed pace, slowing down and observing our surroundings.

This Short Route is a 6km (3.75 mile) walk and has a mixture of town footpaths and farmland locations.

Start time:



The car park has a charge. There may be limited parking spaces so if you can lift share please do. (If you need transport, and otherwise couldn’t attend, for yourself or several in your group, then we may be able to arrange collection from a local hub).

What to bring:

Hiking boots, or stout walking boots recommended (our walks can be wet and boggy with mixed terrain), however, this walk will mostly be on town paths.

Snacks if you need them, we’ll be stopping for refreshments, and passing shops along the way.

Water (recommended 1 litre)

Waterproofs if necessary (we’ll send a weather report nearer the time)


A gentle walk, very flat terrain, sometimes grassy underfoot, fields and pavement.


Our Short Route Photo Walks are designed to be walked at a steady pace, to be as enjoyable as possible for everyone, so that we can take in the surroundings. It’s about taking in the moments, and being in nature at a gentle pace, it’s not about rushing to finish. Participants are responsible for their own health and safety. If you are unsure, please contact us and we’ll be happy to share details about the walk.

Participants are responsible for wearing suitable footwear & clothing for the environment. Participants are responsible for assessing their own risk, the safety of themselves and the suitability of any equipment used.

Any medical conditions that may affect the participants during the walk should be notified to the walk leader/facilitator prior to the start of the walk.


Dogs are welcome, however, please notify us if you plan on bringing your dog/s. We ask that where there are livestock grazing, and fields, dogs must be on leads. Please observe the Countryside Code, and please respect other dog owners and fellow walkers. We cannot guarantee that every stile is suitable for dogs.

Full details will be sent on booking.
