Frome to Bath? Two tunnels.

Postby Bluedoggy » Tue Sep 24, 2013 09:43 am

Hi
I've just discovered the two tunnels which is absolutley fantastic i must say. I commute from Frome to bath everyday. When i leave the two tunnels at the Hope and Anchor at Midford, is the route 24 cycle path to Frome clearly sign posted? I believe it goes to Wellow, Radstock and onto Frome.Reason i ask is that i have never been on that cycle path. I usualy get off at the pub car park and ride the main road back to Frome. Any help would be great. Looking for a safer ride home....

I believe there is a 'safe' route from the end of the two tunnels path to Frome. Looking at Sustrans map there is.

Is that the green highlighted road/track?

Hi BlueDoggy,

From the Hope and Anchor just continue straight on across Midford Viaduct to the Wellow Trecking Centre. Turn right through Wellow then follow the signs. This path is the Colliers Way that will take you to Frome via Radstock. It's part off-road and part quiet back lanes. Might be a bit longer than your road route but much nicer and quieter. See http://www.colliersway.co.uk/rides_and_Walks.php - there's a pdf map on the left of the page.

Also be aware of the nascent Frome Missing Link - http://www.fromesmissinglink.org.uk

For more on Two Tunnels see http://www.twotunnels.org.uk.

Cheers,
