This list is compiled from many sources. Distances and times from South Perrott are taken from the RAC's route planner. It is given in good faith but with no guarantees so if you find any errors please let me know.

Where an item has two entries in the Map Ref column these are the start and end of the walk. Unless the second figure is in square brackets when it is the nearest car park, with walking distance.
