Join Andrew for this 10 mile walk starting from the picturesque village of Wellow, just south of Bath. From there we will walk to the village of Shoscombe before making our way to the Stoney Littleton Long Barrow. This is a Neolithic chambered tomb built around 3500BC. We will stop here for lunch. There will be an optional pub stop at the end of the walk.
