I wouldn't normally go trackside but this series of projecting brackets run along the disused Frome to Radstock railway which has had the Colliers Way National Cycle Route 24 built next to it.
A bit of a scramble down the cutting side and wade through the weeds.
Just to the right of the south western side arch.
