BATHAMPTON FOOTPATHS ASSOCIATION

The Association organises regular monthly walks in the area.

A guide “Walks around Bathampton” describes 12 circular walks of varying lengths around the countryside on the eastern edge of Bath. Although all the walks can be started in Bathampton, many can be accessed equally easily in Batheaston and Bathford. The area covered stretches from Solsbury Hill to Monkton Combe, taking in a great swathe of countryside on the north, east and south of Bath.
It has maps for each walk and many photographs, all in colour. It contains a historical foreword by local historian, Stuart Burroughs, and points of interest for each walk.
The book retails at £4.95 and can be obtained from Helen Nandi (01225 460095)
