SS9337 : Cutcombe: Summerway Cross

near to Wheddon Cross, Somerset, Great Britain

Cutcombe: Summerway Cross
Cutcombe: Summerway Cross
On the left is the ‘Hare Path’ or herepath. S H Burton, writing in 1969, saw this as one of the country’s most significant and ancient trackways. He claimed that it once linked Bristol and Gloucester with Barnstaple and Cornwall by way of the Quantocks, Exford and Simonsbath. Apparently the Saxons adopted the old route so that they could control the high ground to which they had driven the Celts, while they themselves occupied the lowland farmsteads. Here the track forms the boundary between Cutcome and Exton parishes. On the right the present-day road runs to Wheddon Cross. See SS7340 for another view of the track west of Simonsbath
