The Strawberry Line
The Strawberry Line runs from Yatton in the north to Cheddar in the south. It is part of National Cycle Route 26 and is about 10.5 miles long, mostly offroad but passes through the middle of pretty Axbridge. The Sandford Station Railway Heritage Centre is approximately half-way.
There is a pedestrian, cycle, wheelchair and pushchair entrance on The Strawberry Line just south of the A368 with either steps or a ramp. Bike parking at the top of the ramp or bring them into the station (which is wheelchair friendly).
The Main Entrance to the Sandford Station Retirement Village is on the south side of the A368 just to the east of the Pelican Crossing for The Strawberry Line. There is NO PARKING on site but there aren’t any parking restrictions on the A368. Best Postcode for SatNav is BS25 5AB.
By train. Alight at Yatton and either cycle or walk just over 5 miles along The Strawberry Line.
By Bus. The126 Bus (between Weston-Super-Mare and Wells via Cheddar) stops outside the Main Entrance approximately every hour between 7am and 6pm Monday to Saturday. Between the end of March and the beginning of November there are four buses a day on Sunday. The name of the Bus Stop is Towerhead Mead Lane – East towards Wells, West towards Weston-Super-Mare.
An enjoyable way of visiting the Heritage Centre is to Hire a Bike at Yatton Station and cycle here. There is a public carpark at Yatton Station.
