Map of Frome's Missing Links


National Cycle Network: a country-wide network of off-road or quiet on-road routes constructed or suitable for safe cycling and walking

NCN 24

Links Bath and Southampton via Longleat

NCN 25

Links Longleat to Poole

Phase 1

Welshmill to Low Water in Frome. Construction completed late 2014.

Phase 2

Great Elm to Hapsford. This section has been cleared, and hardcore put down. Most of the work has been done by volunteers, who have put in fencing, moved troughs, planted trees and built benches. A final surface of tarmac will go down once we have found funding. (August 2023)

Phase 3

Low Water to Coalash Lane. This section has now been completed, up to the slope that leads to the railway crossing. Trees have been planted along the route and tarmac was laid in August 2023. Many thanks to Mendip District Council for funding and to Connor Construction and Aggregate Industries for they work. Thanks also to the many volunteers who have helped prepare the path, plant trees and put in fencing and gates.

Phase 4

Coalash Lane to Hapsford. Feasibility studies have been done, and a report has been made available to councillors, with the help of Greenways and Cycleroutes. Substantial funding will be required to move forward on this, and we are always looking for funding opportunities.

North Missing Link

Needed to eliminate steep hills and dangerous road crossings between Phases 1 & 2

South Missing Link
