Footpaths in the Parish of Creech St Michael

Article written by Nigel Finch

The Parish of Creech St Michael has many Public Rights Of Way consisting of Footpaths, Bridleways and Restricted Byways.

These criss-cross the fields in and around the Parish and form many enjoyable circular walks connecting the villages in and around the Parish of Creech St Michael.

One of the most popular footpaths is the towpath next to the Bridgwater & Taunton Canal.

Each Public Right Of Way is allocated a number from Taunton Deane Borough Council usually in the format T10/nnn.
