Chew Valley Arts Trail 2015...

Visit the 2015 trail over the weekend of Saturday 10th and Sunday 11th October. Venues will be open from 10am to 6pm daily. Please click on the appropriate village name to look up exhibitor details


The Chew Valley Arts Trail is an annual, privately run, weekend event.  For the past thirteen years it has been a showcase for the creative abilities of people who live or work in the beautiful rural areas of Bath and North East Somerset, North Somerset and into the Mendips. The trail is set between the A38 and A37 main roads, not far from Bristol Airport and just a few miles south of Bristol. It encompasses the famous visitor areas of Chew Valley Lake (including the tearoom/fish restaurant 'Salt and malt' and Blagdon fishing lake, Barrow Tank Reservoirs and Stanton Drew Stones, it is also close to the World Heritage City of Bath, Cheddar and its Caves and the City of Wells.

Part of the experience is for visitors to use the facilities of our local businesses, pubs, cafes and restaurants.  You may need to book lunch at some of the pubs as it will be a busy weekend. Some of our venues may also offer light refreshments. Please see individual villages for details of refreshments and whether or not venues have disabled access.

How to get around: By car and by cycle and some parts on foot.  Cycle routes including the Avon cycle Way are signposted. Please note that due to unforseen circumstances, venue 16 has moved into Chew Magna at The Pelican Pub upstairs room rather than at Stanton Wick Farmhouse
