New Information Board on Two Tunnels Greenway

A new geology information board has just been unveiled on the Two Tunnels Greenway in the cutting on the south side of Combe Down Tunnel.

The board depicts:-
- the rock formations of the tunnel and the surrounding area
- some history of how the rock was commercially quarried and mined
- the work of ‘the father of English geology’ William Smith
- the former Somerset and Dorset Railway which provided the track-bed upon which the path is built
Professional input is from Avon RIGS Group members Simon Carpenter and Andrew Mathieson.
