Nukuhou Saltmarsh

star rating of 4
Walking Tracks
Nukuhou River Saltmarsh Care Group The Nukuhou River Walk runs for about 2km along the river bank. An area that used to be an old rubbish dump, and infested with blackberry and rats, stoats and weasels, has been transformed back to a natural habitat that allows native birds and whitebait to flourish. Just across the road from the Cheddar valley Pottery, this is a great way to walk off some of the cobwebs when you have visited the pottery, or stayed overnight.
