The Bath Beat on Radio

Recently the organisers of The Bath Beat recorded an episode of Ramblings with radio 4. These links will take you to the programme and The National Trust Sky Line walk on which the programme was based.

The Walk and What You See

During the course of the Bath Beat you will pass a number of places of interest which are described here along with links where you can find out more. Starting at Ralph Allen School, you will walk out pass The Bath Dogs Home which was the forerunner for all the dogs homes now found in the country. Next you pass one of the country’s main universities called appropriately University of Bath. Famous for the development of sport you will pass the bobsleigh and bob-skeleton push-start track where Amy Williams trained before winning gold in the 2010 Winter Olympics. A while later you descend to The Avon and Kennet canal which links those rivers together and was built when canals were an important national line of communication. As you leave the canal you pass the The Cross Guns and a while later The Inn at Freshford. Half way around the longer routes and you stop for hot food at Norton St Philip.  Norton St Philip also features as a site of a battle in 1865. Sometime later you will see Stoney Littleton Stone barrow. Finally before you get back you walk alongside parts of the disused Somerset Coal Canal and Somerset & Dorset railway line.
