Not Just Visiting: Bath

It’s good to be back after nearly a three week absence in which Harriet and I moved house, moved offices and have made a new start in the amazing city of Bath. We are so happy to have moved back to this wonderful place. We have fittingly given the blog a bit of a makeover.

We will certainly miss Chipping Sodbury and South Gloucestershire, the place we have called home for the last two years. We have many memories from our time there which we will always keep with us. I am sure we will be going back to South Glos in the near future as there are walks we did not get the time to complete while we were there.

Moving house inevitably means a period of time with no internet, hence the lack of blogging recently. We are looking to rectify this as soon as possible. With a new home comes new places to visit and new walking opportunities.

Bath is a beautiful city. Below are some pictures I took from the Beechen Cliff view point just round the corner from our flat.

We have also already begun walking in the local area. Continuing our mission to complete the Cotswold Way, Harriet and I recently got the bus out to Cold Ashton (a town about halfway between Bath and Old Sodbury where are our last walk on the CW concluded) and walked back to Bath and into the City Centre. The National Trail ends at Bath Abbey where a large plaque in the flagstones bearing the characteristic acorn of the National Trails confirms you have completed the walk. More on this walk to come.

DSC09394We have also completed our favourite local canal walk again for the fourth or so time (I should really just try and get the pictures I need first time round, shouldn’t I?) I am in the process of updating our post for Bath to Bradford-on-Avon along the Kennet & Avon Canal (again). Make sure you have a look at the revised post when it is up, especially if you didn’t read it in its original form.

As always thanks for reading and thanks for bearing with us during Greenspace Walking’s longest period of inactivity since it began.

We are back now and walking season has well and truly begun.

Coming soon; more urban walking around Bristol, the Avon George, more from the Cotswold Way, more Wye Valley walking, more canal and lots of other adventures.

Keep exploring.

Best Regards,

Adam & Harriet
