In 1685 The rebels led by Mothmouth were aiming to surprise the Royalists by attacking at night.

Unfortunately, their guide lost his way and couldn't find the crossing point . This alarmed one of the sentries and a shot was fired marking the beginning of the battle of Sedgemoor,

Walk 1 Sedgemoor Battlefield (4 miles)


This fairly easy walk starts from the church where the Rebels were kept as prisoners.

It follows a long distance hiking route out of the village, through a disused airfield and returns via a public footpath along the Kings's Sedgemoor Drain.

After a mile turn left onto a track, then take fist track on your left and soon onto another track on your right.

This leads towards the battle memorial.
