The Limestone Link

The Limestone Link is a walk between the Cotswold Way and the West Mendip Way. Information presented on this website has been taken from ‘The Limestone Link’ a book written and published by Yatton Ramblers [ISBN 0 9511342 4 8]. The information below is reproduced by kind permission of Yatton Ramblers.

The ‘Limestone Link’ is a route of 36 miles joining the limestone of the Cotswolds to that of the Mendip Hills, passing through the Parish of High  Littleton and Hallatrow. It is a connecting route between the Cotswold Way at Cold Ashton and the West Mendip Way at Shipham. Between the  two, the route passes through the valleys and villages south of Bath. Except for an ascent at each end, the walk is mostly flat and not strenuous.  Included are 12 circular walks varying in length from three to twelve miles, each using a part of the ‘Link’. Cyril Trenfield, of the Avon Area Ramblers’  Association, was inspired to devise the ‘Link’ by a reference in a Wansdyke District Council Structure Plan to the desirability of having such a path  running across the south part of Avon & connecting with the Cotswold Way. It was walked, written and published by Yatton Ramblers who have  endeavoured to provide correct and accurate routes. May we please ask walkers to observe the new Country Code, in particular leaving gates closed or open as found, causing no damage, keeping dogs under control and leaving no litter.
