Ruins in the Woods

An old sepia photo of the mineral line
Walk from Chargot Woods exploring the mineral railway.

The 19th century mineral line was built to carry iron from the Brendons to Watchet for shipment to South Wales. Spectacular remains are hidden in the hills.  This is a one hour stroll to look at Langham Engine House, then a two hour walk down the steep miners' track to see Bearland Flue and other features connected with iron mining. We may visit Burrow Farm Engine House or Kennisham Hill. Free. Booking essential.
