Bath's Linear Park gets a clean-up thanks to Two Tunnels Group
A park path which will be part of a £1.9 million green route for walkers and cyclists has been given a spruce-up.
Volunteers from the environmental charity Sustrans and members of the Two Tunnels Group have swept a quarter-mile section of Linear Park in Bath.
The pathway through the park is part of the four-mile Two Tunnels Greenway which will link Oldfield Park with Midford when if officially opens in April.
The route also takes in two disused railway tunnels which were once part of the Somerset and Dorset Railway.

Two Tunnels Group chairman Frank Tompson said: "With lots of trees around, the leaves have been building up for several weeks now and presenting a problem for path users, so the time had come to do something about it.
"Unfortunately we chose a rainy day to start the job, so we all got pretty wet – but spirits were high when we reflected on what we'd achieved."
Another session or two will be held in the next few weeks to complete the clean-up, with equipment supplied by B&NES Council.
The route will be officially launched with a celebration event at Bloomfield open space on April 6.
