The Neroche 'Herepaths' Scheme

The Neroche Scheme covers 36 square kilometres of the northern ridge of the Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It protects and celebrates the heritage of the area, providing opportunities for quiet enjoyment, education, and training in countryside skills.

'Herepaths' were originally important Saxon trade and
communication routes. The word 'Herepath' is Old English for 'people's path'. Several herepaths passed through the Neroche area, and the name has been adopted for the new trails that are being developed by the Neroche Scheme.
