A new cycle route for Bath which makes use of an old railway tunnel underneath Combe Down has been officially unveiled. The project was made possible thanks to a partnership between Bath & North East Somerset Council and cycling charity Sustrans.

Two Tunnels route opens

Two former railway tunnels that run beneath the city of Bath reopen this weekend - almost fifty years after they were abandoned. But instead of trains, it's cyclists and pedestrians who'll be able to use them.
