The West Country region


Situated in the south west of Britain, Exmoor National Park contains an amazing variety of landscapes within its 267 square miles. A unique landscape of moorland, woodland, valleys and farmland, shaped by people and nature over thousands of years. Where high cliffs plunge into the Bristol Channel, and cosy pubs and tearooms offer delicious local produce.


The Brendon Hills merge level into the eastern side of Exmoor, and they are included within the Exmoor National Park. The highest point on the hills is Lype Hill at 1,388 feet (423 m) above sea level the range meets Exmoor. The highest point on the ridge itself is 1,350 feet (411 m). Both points are marked by Ordnance Survey trig points and are located within enclosed farmland.

The hills are quite heavily cultivated unlike their neighbouring upland areas of Exmoor and the Quantock Hills. Over the centuries they have been mined for minerals, notably ironstone from which iron is extracted for making steel. During the 19th century this activity reached a peak with the West Somerset Mineral Railway, including an 800 feet (244 m) incline, being built to take the ore to Watchet from where it was sent to Ebbw Vale for smelting. The main mining operations ended when the mines were worked out towards the end of the 19th century. Interesting remains of the mineral railway can be seen just a short distance from Chidgley.

The hills are on the route of the Coleridge Way, which runs along our boundary and can be accessed directly from Chidgley Hill Farm.
