No 2 Footpath, Shell Lane, Coffinswell

Walk Number 2 – No.2 Footpath. Shell Lane, Coffinswell
Distance: About 2 kilometres (1.2 miles)
Time: About 45 minutes (circular route)
Start your walk near the Linny public house and walk back through the village with Princess
Cottages on your right. Take the first turning right, up Connybeare Lane (sign posted Milber).
This is a gently rising route, between high banks, with some wild flowers nearly always growing
amongst the grass and hedges.
Walk up as far as Connybear Wood (on your right). Within 15 metres there is a “kissing gate”
on the left into a grassy pathway which skirts a field on the right. Pause and look across the
valley to the lovely view beyond, to country and moor. Walk down the path and go through
another “kissing gate” on your left into a field.
Cross the field diagonally, then follow a wide path, keeping the hedge on your right. Go
through yet another “kissing gate” and down the footpath, with banks, hedges and trees on
both sides.
A few minutes’ walk down the track brings you on to the road and into the village again. Turn
left into the road and follow it up through the village.
A short diversion is an option here if you have not yet seen the Old Well after which Coffinswell is named
(Coffyn’s Well). Instead of turning left, turn right and walk 100 metres down to a grassy triangle on the right,
on which the well is located. Retrace your steps.
There is a seat to rest on at the top of the hill, put there by the villagers for the Queen’s
Silver Jubilee. Pass the post box and telephone on your left and, about 400 metres on, you are
back to the Linny once more.
