The walk takes us from the picturesque village of Batheaston, up to the top of the Iron Age Hill Fort of Little Solsbury Hill. We’ll descend from there before climbing up to the top of the atmospheric Charmy Down – a disused airfield.  In between we’ll enjoy beautiful views across Bath and St Catherine’s Valley.  The views from the top will make the climbing worthwhile!

This walk is 4.75 mile / 7.6 km with an up and down of 994 ft / 302m, it has two steep ascents and descents and a stile. There are some unpaved paths and minor roads. There are public toilets near the start at Batheaston (20p).

Bring a picnic as there are no refreshments on the way, and we’ll deserve a snack at the top of the hills!

Dogs are welcome, though there is livestock in some fields so please be prepared to put them on a lead.

The walk leader is Nicole Daw from Cotswolds National Landscape.
