Wills Neck

Wills Neck is the summit of the Quantock Hills and is one of the highest points in Somerset. Located about 8 miles north west of the county town of Taunton it stands at 384m high. It is possible to see Dartmoor, Exmoor, the Blackdown Hills, the Mendips and the Brecon Beacons from the top of the hill on a clear day.

There are several walks that take in the Quantock Hills and Wills Neck, some of which are quite steep.

The name ‘Wills Neck’ comes from a Saxon word meaning stranger.
