If ever you have wanted to do the Bath Skyline Walk but were concerned about the length of the route and the hills, this walk may be for you, together with Part 2. This Part 1 is from University of Bath to Smallcombe Vale but the important thing is, it is all flat or downhill! This walk starts near the Bath Cats and Dogs Home, next to the University and takes in stunning countryside including Bushey Norwood, Bathampton Woods/Down, Sham Castle, Bathwick Fields before finishing at Smallcombe Vale. There is a lot to see on the walk including some stunning view over Bath.

Part 2 is on Friday, 21st September at 2pm.

This walk is in partnership with AgeUK B&NES, you can find out more about their regular walks here.
