Two Tunnels Greenway Walk (Bath to Midford) - Saturday 24 November 2007

On Saturday 24 November 2007 a small group of supporters of the Two Tunnels Greenway Project set off from Linear Park on the Lower Bristol Road in Bath. The aim was to walk the length of the route as far possible, taking detours around the two sealed tunnels. Once the project is complete in a few years it will be possible to cycle and walk to the villages south of Bath, only encountering short gradients. It was a cold and wet morning but most people warmed up once the walk got underway. It was an enjoyable time and everyone was able to see how opening the two tunnels will improve the experience - not least because there will be no need to cross Wellsway and there will be no massive hike up to Combe Down!

Stopping to hear about plans for the path crossing the road

Stopping to hear some more history of the area

The group at the site of the north entrance to the Devonshire Tunnel - to be dug out

Now on the other side of Wellsway at the south entrance of the Devonshire tunnel

The entrance is used as a canvas by some

And the lock on the access door is broken again
