Stunning countryside walk with a river, two canals and an abandoned railway.
A gentle nine mile meander through stunning Bath area countryside. Our walk will take us through Sydney Gardens, Bathampton, Claverton, Limpley Stoke, Monkton Combe and then under Combe Down, and back into Bath.
During the walk, which will be taken at a gentle pace, we will walk alongside the River Avon, the Kennet & Avon and Somerset Coal Canals before joining the old Somerset and Dorset Railway line which will bring up back into Bath.
We will visit the last resting place of Admiral Arthur Phillip (Bathampton), Harry Patch (Monkton Combe) and discuss the locations of a secret World War Two underground ammunition depot and the film, The Titfield Thunderbolt (1953).
This will not be a guided tour, but there is plenty to see and chat about as we pass through some wonderful countryside.
