Pamphill Back to Shapwick

You are now starting the return leg, turn left at the School as you approach from up the hill. The hill is now over!

After turning left, continue past the school and the village cricket ground on your left.

You then come to a T-Junction (Abbott Street) with a quaint Church (St Stephens) in front of you; you are now at the South East of the Kingston Lacy estate.

Turn left along Abbott Street and follow it back down the hill. Nice views here...

You'll come to a sharp left turn, with a car park and track off to the right. This is where Abbott Street becomes Sandy Lane. You can now go for a bit of gentle off-roading along the Kingston Lacy foot/cycle path back towards Shapwick.

We'll have some marshalls here to show you where you are, and if you wish to go back the roadway that's very simple too, just carry on down Sandy Lane to rejoin the Cowgrove Road you came up earlier and follow the original route back to Shapwick.

If you do go off-road, we'll have some signs/marshalls along the way and at the end to direct you back to Shapwick.

Halfway down the path you come to a 'junction', take the left fork.

At the end of the track, you just go straight on down Park Lane, signposted to Shapwick.

Park Lane is a straightforward almost entirely downhill glide back to Shapwick.
