Pittcombe Head Bridleway

CareMoor funds have been used to contribute to works on a permitted bridleway connecting Pittcombe Head to the Culbone Inn.

The 1 mile long permitted bridleway in the parish of Porlock was suggested by the landowner and provides a safe alternative to the busy A39. It markedly improves the access network in the area and helps to improve connectivity between particularly scenic areas such as Hawkcombe ancient woodland, Porlock Weir and the Oare valley.

Amanda Hamley of the West Somerset & Exmoor Bridleways Association said “A friend and I were enjoying a ride recently and came across the new permitted bridleway at the North side of the A38, opposite The Culbone Inn. Seeing the finger post sign as we crossed the road, we decided to have a look. We were delighted to find out that it ran along the entire side of the main road towards the AA Box, offering some lovely trots and canters.” A generous donations of £200 was also received recently from the WS&EBA from the proceeds of a recent ride.

Huge thanks go to the landowner Rupert Martin and our CareMoor supporters, without who this exciting project would not have been possible.
