Cycling and walking are great ways to explore the area around Wookey Hole. You may like to know the part Sustrans plays in all this. Sustrans is the charity that’s enabling people to travel by foot, bike or public transport for more of the journeys we make each day. Their work makes it possible for people to choose healthier, cleaner and cheaper journeys with better places and spaces to move through and live in. The National Cycle Network (NCN) is a really important part of this work with over 14000 miles of signed routes throughout the UK mostly on quiet roads or traffic free paths.
You may have seen the blue and red signs with the number 3 going through the village. These are for NCN 3 which runs all the way from Land’s End to Bristol.
My name is Colin Babb and I’m a volunteer Sustrans ranger living in Wookey Hole. I am one of a group of volunteers who look after the section from Chew Magna to Glastonbury, keeping the signs clean and in good order.
