Connections to Longer Walks

Further routes will be added to the Maps section of the website, showing links to other footpaths as follows:

  • Four routes between Widcombe, Lyncombe Hill Fields and the Alexandra Park viewpoint are available using the footpaths up Beechen Cliff from Calton Gardens and Holloway and/or Lyncombe Hill.
  • A link to the Two Tunnels Path can be achieved via the steep steps adjacent to no. 8 Greenway Lane, opposite the playing fields of Beechen Cliff school.
  • A link to the Bath Skyline Walk can be achieved by walking from the South Field gate via Greenway Lane, Rosemount Lane, and Church Street; then turning right up Church Lane behind St. Thomas à Becket church to the end of this road, finally climbing the well signposted path on the left across National Trust land to join the Skyline Walk at Rainbow Wood.

An alternative circular walk 2.75 miles long documented by Bathscape that includes Beechen Cliff, Lyncombe Hill Fields and Alexandra Park, and which crosses the Two Tunnels Path can be found at https://www.bathscapewalkingfestival.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/City-Centre-Beechen-cliff-and-Lyncombe.pdf
