This walk starts at the main crossroads / island in Southstoke where there is parking. It goes clockwise from there, visiting a number of interesting features along the way. After about an hour you get to the Combe Hay Locks which are part of the old Somesetshire Coal Canal (now a relic).
The walk picks up the Fosse Way (Roman road) just south of Dunkerton, and follows it until it becomes the main road into Bath. From there it follows the path above the Combe Hay valley, path Sulis Manor and back to Southstoke.
