A country walk along the green corridors of Lyncombe Vale with Andrew Swift.

This walk seeks out the network of green corridors and little-known open spaces along Lyncombe Vale. Much of the walk is through fields, with a visit to the largest disused surface quarry in the city and a hidden dale through which Somerset & Dorset expresses once thundered.

Terrain: Much of the walk is through fields and along rough paths, with steep gradients and a few flights of steps.

Starting point: Small green space at the west end of Claverton Street, Widcombe (near bottom of Lyncombe Hill) BA2 4LE; what three words: park.push.slam

Distance: 5.5 miles
