There is an extensive network of footpaths in and around the village which stretches from the toll bridge to the Bath Golf Club, and all the way along the tow path.

We produced a Footpaths Guide in April 2013 to encourage people to explore the footpaths and to make the most of our beautiful surroundings. We hope people have found it to be a useful resource! An online version will be available to download from here soon.

We work closely with B&NES to ensure footpaths remain open and accessible. We try to walk the paths as often as possible but we don’t spot everything! To report a problem with any footpath please ring Cllr David Mayo on (01225) 466 875.


The Parish Council is responsible for cutting back surface vegetation on the footpaths. Volunteer working parties meet at Dry Arch Growers on the 2nd Thursday of the month at 6pm and the 4th Saturday of the month at 10am between May to September. These are the dates for 2013:

  • 9 May at 6pm
  • 25 May at 10am
  • 13 June at 6pm
  • 22 June at 10am
  • 11 July at 6pm
  • 27 July at 10am
  • 8 August at 6pm
  • 24 August at 10am
  • 5 September at 6pm
  • 21 September at 10am

We use scythes to cut back the grass and secateurs for brambles and small branches.

If you would like to join us please come along – no experience necessary! You should wear comfortable shoes and clothes that will keep out the nettles. We can provide gloves and equipment.
