Summary: The Samaritans Way South West is a long distance footpath in the south-west of England which was created by the Bristol Ramblers Association to support the Samaritans charity. The route starts at Clifton Suspension Bridge on the Avon Gorge in Bristol, and continues across the Chew Valley to the Mendip Hills. From the Mendips it continues to Cheddar Gorge and Cheddar, along the Somerset Levels to Glastonbury and Street and on through Bridgwater and Goathurst to the Quantock Hills with a scenic ridge walk passing through the villages Crowcombe and Stogumber and around the Brendon Hills. The route then crosses Exmoor through the villages of Monksilver, Luxborough, Winsford and Exford to the Doone Valley, Badgworthy Water and Malmsmead to Brendon following the East Lyn River and climbs Myrtleberry Cleaves to Lynton and on to the finish at Lynmouth.
