Explore East Harptree

Visit East Harptree to see the historical Smitham Chimney, a relic of Mendip's industrial past. The Cornish-style chimney survived when the site closed in 1875 and was saved from complete destruction in 1973 by The Mendip Society and Somerset County Council.

In front of the Chimney there is a pond where you can see dragonflies in the summer months. There are also fine views of the Chew Valley from the grassland area nearby.

The project to improve the area around the chimney is a partnership between Forestry England, the Mendip Society, the Mendip Hill AONB Service, Countryside Agency and Aggregate Industries.
