Please note, this is a joint walk with Oxon 20-30s Ramblers, to promote closer links with nearby groups; see link here. The walk leader is from the Oxon group.
An interesting and gently-graded circuit from rural to urban Bath and back again. Featuring lots of towpath and a former railway line, two former rail tunnels, a canal tunnel, a viaduct, an aqueduct, and some of the Georgian architecture in the city centre.
The long tunnels are lit, but please carry a torch, to aid visibility especially to cyclists who also use the path.
Car share meeting point: The Water Tower in Clifton at 9:00am (meeting point changed due to the Bristol 10k). It is preferred that everyone car shares on this walk due to the fact that it is a joint walk with another group and due to the very limited parking at the walk starting point. Contact Kirsty H (07754536517).
Bathampton Meeting Point: Bathampton, next to The George Inn (BA2 6TR) at 10:30 am. Parking only SOUTH of the canal.
Please park considerately SOUTH of the canal on High St or nearby residential streets, and allow a few extra minutes to find a parking spot and wander back to the start point. Please car share if possible (especially mindful this is a joint walk).
The parking north of the canal is time restricted and will not allow enough time to complete the walk.
Dogs welcome on leads.
Bring packed lunch? Yes
Post walk beverage: Pub (during walk)
Walk Leader: Andrew Perkins (see Oxon 20-30s website for contact details)
