The Dramway

The Dramway Path is a nine mile linear walk that follows sections of the route of a nineteenth century dramway. It was used to carry coal from the Bristol coalfield in Coalpit Heath to the River Avon by horse-drawn freight wagons on rails.

The walk is covered in a colourful booklet which describes some of the fascinating remains of the Dramway and the features found alongside the linear route of the Dramway Path. There are also excellent opportunities to create your own attractive circular walks, using existing footpaths to connect sections of the Dramway Path with villages, towns and other places of interest that are within easy walking distance.

You can download the free booklet or pick  one up at your local library.

The Walking to Health initiative holds a number of walks along the route as does the Friends of Kingswood Heritage Museum.
