Short Walks from the River Avon Trail

The project has mapped five short and varied circular walks in the Avon Valley that allow you to explore places of interest and see outstanding views. Details are shown on the relevant information panels on the Trail and also on the map pages in the River Avon Trail guide book (download):
  • Paradise Bottom Leigh Woods
  • Merchants Walk Historic Bristol
  • Panorama Walk Avon Valley Woodlands Local Nature Reserve**
  • North Stoke Cotswold Hills
  • Beechen Cliff Panoramic Views of Bath
**Please note: The correct location for the information panel on the Panorama Walk is at the south-west corner of the circuit rather than as marked in the River Avon Trail booklet.

The Water Space Study, focusing on Dundas, Bath and Hanham has published three new Riverside Heritage Walks that you can download and take with you:
Bath Six Bridges Walk
Two Brass Mills Walk
River Avon, Road & Rail Walk
