Description

This cycling and walking path between Dundas Aqueduct, Radstock and Frome makes use of disused railway lines and quiet country lanes through picturesque Somerset countryside. Starting just outside the city of Bath, the route extends from Limpley Stoke Valley in the north to Frome Valley in the south taking you through the heart of the old Somerset Coal Field.

Dundas Aqueduct, which stretches across the River Avon, has a visitor centre with refreshments and other facilities.

Radstock is set in some of the most beautiful Somerset countryside and is home to the Radstock Museum where the long and fascinating history of mining and life in the North Somerset Coalfields can be discovered.

Frome is steeped in history and creativity, with more listed buildings than any other town in Somerset, as well as a renowned thriving Arts and Crafts community. There is plenty to explore, including a museum, 17th and 18th century housing and shopping. (sustrans)
