Thanks again, sounds like canals are a good option.

Thanks again everyone. My eldest and I tried our first walk from those suggested this evening, Clevedon to Portishead along the coastal path (thanks Anne Jacko). Rather an epic to get to Clevedon and back from Portishead by bus, really pushing the Bristol Outer Zone bus pass limits and there were some delays along the way, but at least that meant we got to see the sunset.

Carsington Water in Derbyshire is a goody as well; walk the perimeter and its about 8 miles with a pub at about six miles and then the cafe at the visitor centre when you get back to the car park.  Probably not doable from Bristol in a day but if you're up this way doing either Derwent Valley or Lady Bower is can be a nice change of pace.
