Supporting Active Travel and Leisure

We aim to build a fairer, greener and more vibrant Mendip that values our distinctive towns and rural communities.

On June 6th Mendip's Cabinet Board adopted a paper that supported these aims and proposed the Council commence work on an integrated network of multi-user paths around the District in partnership with our City, Town and Parish Councils, as well as the existing voluntary groups and organisations active in the District. These paths aspire to provide motor-free connections along Mendip's busiest commuter routes, enabling safe, healthy, sustainable active travel alternatives to driving for our residents.

If you would like to be involved in the project - by auditing the current paths or sharing knowledge please contact

Mendip District Council is working on a series of projects to increase opportunities for multi-user paths in this area.

The Existing Connections

The Mendip area offers a variety of contrasting landscapes, offering many attractions to those keen on exploring its heritage and visiting the beautiful Towns, Villages, City and vast countryside.
