Carole has invited Kingswood Ramblers to join with her and Bath Ramblers in a walk.
***Please note 5.5 and 7 mile options below, to cater for ground conditions on the day. Park and Ride likely to be busy, but there is an Overflow Car Park, off Car Park B***
If we can avoid very muddy conditions on the river path at Saltford, (Saturday recce planned), we'll walk along the river path to Saltford and stop there briefly for drinks/snacks and toilet stop (20p). Then, we'll join the Bristol and Bath Railway Path back to the Park and Ride. Total distance 5.5 miles of easy, level walking - estimated finish time: 1.30 pm.
If there are very muddy conditions at Saltford which can't be avoided, we'll use a different route - along the railway path to Avon Riverside Station, just beyond Saltford, for our coffee stop, and then retrace our steps back along the railway path. Total distance 7 miles.
If we use the 5.5 mile Saltford route, once back at Newbridge, there could be an optional extra gentle undulating 2 mile walk in the Carrs Wood/Newton Mill area.
Bring a drink/snacks for the coffee stop. You may also like to bring lunch.
Optional refreshments at The Boathouse pub after the walk.
