You should visit this area and walk along the canal. By the lock is the most wonderful tea room with the best service and food in the area.

Lovely walk from Maunsel Lock near Maunsel Tea rooms, NOT in Bridgwater as the location on the page suggests. There's a car park across the road. It's a 2hr walk from the lock to Bathpool, Taunton and 3 hrs the other way to Bridgewater. Lovely flat walk along the beautiful canal. Would recommend to anyone. Then take a sneaky cream tea in the cute tea rooms.
The walk is very pretty with the planet models along it. Great also for cycling along there and walking the dogs.

Walking this canal from Taunton to Bridgewater was very attractive and this lock with its cafe was pretty.

Free car park by the canal with a tea room opposite. The tea room sells basic sandwiches, tuna, cheese etc. with a good selection of cakes plus ice cream. Friendly staff but it does get busy so be prepared to wait a little for food.
The Somerset Space Walk starts about 400 yds from the cafe towards Taunton and you can then walk in either direction to see a true scale model of our Solar System with the ‘planets' strategically placed along the towpath. From the sun to Pluto is about 6 miles.
