Bristol —-> two tunnels?

Posted on
  • Never actually done the 2 tunnels loop. How long would It take from Bristol (fishponds) roughly? Might do it tomorrow morning but don’t have loads of time free.

  • @AlexD It's roughly an hour from the Fishponds Fish statue by Morrisons up to the Hope and Anchor in Midford. If you then want to loop down through Monkton Coombe to the canal path and back to Bath that will add on a bit of time, as the footpath is fairly narrow and a bumpy surface. So if you are short on time I'd recommend just doing Midford and back the way you came.

  • Ah ok, cheers. I’m familiar with the path to bath as I used to commute to bath when I worked there and I remember it being about 45 mins, but then Sustrans was saying 13 miles for the loop, which I assumed would be about 45 mins again.

    I’ll give it a whirl how you suggested, just to the hope and anchor and back. Cheers!

  • Ooh, I'd forgotten about this loop. Think that's Saturday sorted.

  • Been through there 3 times, every bastard time people with dogs off their leads.

    Chilly also.

  • I actually got round to doing this the other weekend. We rode from the 'ponds to bitton on the path, then took the a431 in to bath, then through the tunnels to Midford. The tunnels were pretty nice and quiet and we were in chatting mode, so we just backtracked to bath rather than our planned road run back to Salford. Then the path to St Georges for a coffee at Camber. Would repeat!
