Somerset Space Walk

Maunsel Lock Canal Centre Tea Room, Bankland, North Newton, Bridgwater, Somerset, TA7 0DH

The Somerset Space Walk is a true scale model of the solar system running along the canal between Taunton and Bridgwater. To celebrate its re-opening, join us to paint the Sun, learn more about the stars and explore the environment here on Earth.
You can take a voyage from Pluto at either Bridgwater or Taunton to the Sun at Mausel Locks in just 11 kilometers and truely appreciate the vastness of space. Come by bike, walk or take a boat up the canal.
The event is organised by the Sharpham Outdoors Ecominds Spring to Life team with their friends at Go-Wild-Stay-Well in Taunton, as part of a BIG Lottery Ecominds funded project to breathe new life into the Somerset Space Walk.
