Walking Close to Bath

Walking Close to Bath

by: Clive Brown
This little guide is one of a range of 'no frills' local walking guide booklets which admirably achieve their objective of getting you out in the countryside amongst beautiful scenery on carefully chosen routes full of interest. The directions are clear and precise and the pencil drawn sketch maps are particularly attractive as well as practical.

This guide focuses on the river Avon near Bath with ten varied and interesting circular walks varying in length from 3.5 miles to over 9 miles. The routes make use of rights of way, national recreational paths, riverside and canalside paths in the countryside near Bath. There is very little walking on roads except when unavoidable. Most are on firm, good quality paths and are well marked and signposted.
