Event Details

Our Groups are up and running with their activities.   From the 1st of May we will no longer require advanced booking for most events.  Events may still require advanced booking if it is necessary to place a limit on the number of attendees based on the event's risk assessment, or other factors.

General information

An 8 mile circular walk centred on Lansdown, taking in the rolling hills and countryside to the NW of Bath.

Across fields, through spinneys, visiting two small hamlets early on. The second half of the walk takes in the Cotswold Way with extensive views to Bristol, the Severn bridges, a large swathe of South Gloucs, Bath and North Somerset from the higher ridges and viewpoints that the Cotswold Way affords.

With several springs, gates aplenty and only two stone stiles, this walk is dog-friendly although dogs and well-behaved owners will need to be kept on a short lead as there is livestock in some of the fields.

The elevation varies, with several short ascents and descents early on, and a gentle climb up to the CW. The walk -in is fairly flat and skirts around Bath Racecourse. A stewards’ inspection deemed this section of path to be “good to firm, firm in places”.

Terrain / Difficulty

Predominantly farm tracks, woodland trails field paths and three short sections of quiet country lane.

Approximate Distance
