A short walk on the Longest day…..Up to a Down!

Back to Guided Walks page

On the walk over it was found that Car Park charges were removed in the Spring so please don't be put off coming, and you can relax over a drink at the end of the walk without worries!

From Bathampton we walk along the Kennet and Avon Canal, before climbing up to the downs. Good views across the valley to Little Solsbury Hill. Hopefully the wild flowers will be in bloom? Please bring a drink. Not suitable for Pushchairs.

Please note that since planning the walk, Car Park charges have been started in the pub car park. £2 for 3 hours.*URGENT* Please look at the Message Below as No Car Park charges now apply June 16th 2018
