Two Tunnels Greenway

About

Discover the Two Tunnel path and you will find a relatively flat walking and cycling route that gives you a wonderful view of Bath's Georgian crescents before it leaves the city behind. The path is a four-mile stretch of disused railway line running through the Linear Park on the south side, to the disused Devonshire tunnel at Bloomfield. The railway closed as a through route in March 1966 and  physical work started on the new path at Devonshire tunnel in 2010. The Two Tunnels route eventually opened on 4th April 2013.

Once out of the Devonshire tunnel you emerge into a deep, wooded valley as the route leaves Lyncombe Vale and heads underground into Combe Down Tunnel, and then over the renovated Tucking Mill viaduct. At over one mile long, the Combe Down tunnel is the longest cycling and walking tunnel in Britain and features an interactive light and sound installation.

The route links into the National Cycle Network with routes to Radstock and Bournemouth in the south, and the Bristol to Bath walking cycling route in the west. 

Whether you explore it on foot, cycle your own bike, or hire one locally, you will find that the Two Tunnels Greenway offers you a scenically varied and rewarding couple of hours.
