?The Strawberry Line is a 10 mile route that currently stretches from Yatton to Cheddar. Its wide level paths make it an ideal place for individuals and families to enjoy a leisurely walk or cycle. A map of the line is available from local Tourist Information Centres and libraries or click here to view a pdf.

The Strawberry Line was built as a railway line, completed in 1869, to carry strawberries from Cheddar - thus giving the line its name. The line closed in 1965 and became part of the Cheddar Valley Railway Nature Reserve. In 1983 work began on the line to develop it into a path that could be enjoyed by many people. As well as walking and cycling, a stretch in Congresbury is also available for horse riders to enjoy.

If anyone would like to become more involved with the Strawberry Line and its future plans you can contact the Cheddar Valley Railway Society at The Society have a number of volunteer working parties involved in conservation work and keeping the route clear.
