A great circular walk a little way out of Bath around the village of Box.
This walk climbs the hill out of Box along the MacMillan Way, a long-distance footpath from Boston to Abbotsbury which passes right through the middle of Box.
The climb is a slow and gentle one passed a local Market Garden and up to the little village of Henley. From there it is flat all the way on a large arc through Norbin Farm and around to Chapel Plaister.
The walk back down to Box is fantastic. Through the woods and fields until you end up right next to the entrance to Box Tunnel. Box Tunnel was built between December 1838 and June 1841 for the Great Western Railway (GWR) under the direction of Isambard Kingdom Brunel and has a very interesting war history.
From there it is a short walk back to the car park in the Recreation Ground.
