Warmley Station

Facilities listed below unless stated otherwise in the specific event information.

Once part of the Midland Railway’s Mangotsfield to Bath Branch Line it was repurposed to become the Bristol & Bath Railway Path by the volunteer led ‘Cyclebag’ (becoming Sustrans); work commenced in 1978 and finally opened in 1985. It is now on a popular route linking the two cities with a traffic free path for leisure and commuting alike.

If the route involves starting on the Bristol & Bath Railway Path remember this is a shared path and that even first thing in the morning there will occasionally be other users, perhaps with a dog; so take your time, leave space for others to pass safely and remember there is the occasional bollard or barrier. For larger events I endeavour to set you off in smaller groups.

On the station platform is Warmley Waiting Room, a busy cafe with adjoining garden. They are kind enough to open early for events starting here. You can grab a hot drink and breakfast roll before you depart; please allow a little extra time upon arrival. A single toilet in the Tardis is available.

The adjoining public toilets should be open from 06:30 but depends on the council’s street cleaning team’s work load.

The following is being updated so some locations may not have all details yet.

On street near by - Please do not use the car park next to the start. This is 2hrs max and actively enforced. Surrounding streets in the immediate vicinity are residents only, further out no restrictions.
  • Lyde Green P&R is free to use but has opening/closing times though ungated; check link for restrictions. Directions here.
  • Bristol Parkway Main Car Park for long term parking and follow directions for 'train access' above.
