What you'll do

Only a short stroll from the city centre, enter another world, onto the skyline hills above Bath and beyond, through 6 miles of meadows and ancient woodlands to secluded valleys. The gentle chatter of birds, rustling leaves and babbling spring waters replace the city drone. The smell of wildflowers fill the air in the warmer months and in autumn the fruits of nature abound in the hedgerows and orchard fruit trees. At all times of the year, a variety of views from this walk's elevated position offer new perspectives of Bath, nestled among tree-lined hills. Along the way we'll discover and Iron Age camp, ruined Georgian gardens, roman and medieval mine workings, standing stones, the Kennet and Avon Canal and bombed out pubs.

Hi I'm Garry. I'm an archaeologist, regular traveller and qualified walking leader. I often lead walks in the mountains of England and Wales as well as in Europe and N Africa. But, Bath has been my home on and off for 30 years and I love it. I've explored all of its highways and byways and worked on many archaeological sites in the area - from Bronze Age to Roman. On this walk we'll explore my version of the famous Bath Skyline walk, taking in wonderful views of the city and surroundings, but also visit some little known archaeological and historical sites and features on the way.
