Connecting paths and trails

The Dramway Path

The Railway Path links to the Dramway Path, another historic trail which follows the original route of a 19th century, horse-drawn railway that carried coal from Coalpit Heath to the River Avon. This 9-mile linear walk, where some intriguing features from the old railway still remain, has no steep hills and offers lots of opportunities for circular walks and refreshment stops.
