Park in car park on the edge of King’s Wood (ST421560).

There is open access to a large area of downland, scrub and disused quarries, affording panoramic views across Somerset. This is very rich botanically – Common Cudweed, Dropwort, Squinancywort, Honewort, Dwarf Mouse-ear and Lesser Chickweed to name a few. Many rocky outcrops provide habitat for Basil Thyme and a variety of roses.
