Bristol and Bath Year Round Walks Guidebook

Bristol and Bath Year Round Walks Guidebook

by: Nigel Vile
This pocket-size walking guide contains 20 circular routes, covering the very best of Bristol and Bath's wide-ranging landscape, from high in the Mendip Hills down to the Somerset Levels. The walks travel through stunning Cotswold villages and along meandering waterways right out to the shoreline of the Severn Estuary and the Bristol Channel.

Highlights include:
Spring - A carpet of bluebells in Leigh Woods and Hawkesbury Upton in the Cotswolds
Summer - A seaside stroll at Sand Bay
Autumn - Dramatic colours at Westonbirt Arboretum and the deer park at Ashton Court
Winter - Wintering wildfowl along the banks of the River Severn and the starling murmurations over the Somerset Levels.

The walks range in length from 3 to 6 miles, with recommendations for the best season to visit. Each walk entry begins with a paragraph or two describing the highlights of the walk. This is followed by practical information including how to get there and parking with satnav location, OS Explorer map sheet reference, terrain details and any food and drink options.
