Bradford-on-Avon Walking Wheel (spokes 7 and 8) – 15.7.20

Exploring the wheel again ..

Although we are still not organising group walks in this area it’s a good time to investigate potential new routes. Sometimes these recces don’t go quite to plan. We intended to walk up spoke 8, cut across using a footpath on the OS map then travel back via spoke 7. We went wrong somewhere around mile 3.5 so our intended circular walk ended up as a squiggly figure of 8. Nevertheless it was a very pleasant trip out.

This was a very flat walk through a lot of wheat fields

Bradford-on-Avon Walking Wheel (Inner Circle) – 23.6.20

Well it’s been a while for obvious reasons but we finally got out for a walk. This is part of the Bradford-on-Avon walking wheel which consists of an inner and outer circle connected by 8 radiating ‘spokes’. The inner circle is 5.7 miles and takes in the outskirts of BoA town. You can buy a laminated map of the whole wheel at BoA library or tourist information. The routes are marked very well by colour co-ordinated markers on lamp-posts etc.
