Cross Lanes gives way to a network of old bridle paths and footpaths, which now all now cross the A 369 and then lead to the National Trust Land and Failand.
The open country side on the village side of the main road comprises arable fields, which until the 1980s were smaller hedged areas but are now one very large open expanse with 2 main copses circling ponds.
The impressions of this area, which inspires the many walkers are the extensive views of Failand, the docks and wonderful skies and sunsets as you look west.
One footpath traverses this large arable area and ends at the Rudgleigh Inn abutting the Easton in Gordano Cricket Club, a lovely rural scene of village cricket, while the spectators sit outside the cricket pavilion or sip pints outside the pub.
