Photo competition to mark 40th anniversary of the Bristol & Bath Railway Path

A photography competition has been launched to mark the 40th anniversary of the Bristol and Bath Railway Path.

Sustrans is a national, Bristol-based sustainable transport charity. Its flagship project is the National Cycle Network and the Bristol and Bath Railway Path is where the Sustrans journey began.

To celebrate the iconic route’s 40th birthday in 2019, people are being asked to send in photographs and the winning entries will be turned into a calendar.

All images entered must be taken on the Bristol and Bath Railway Path and celebrate your experiences on the path and what it means to you.

Photos (of landscape orientation) can be from a camera or a smartphone. The closing dates for the respective phases are:

Winter (Thursday 28th February)

Spring (Friday 31st May)

Summer (Friday 30th August)

Autumn (Thursday 31st October)

Shortlisted photos will be chosen by representatives from Sustrans South and uploaded onto their Facebook gallery for the seasonal voting stages. The winning photos are the ones which receive the most ‘likes’. The Bristol and Bath Railway Path calendar will be produced shortly after the final vote on Monday 11th November.

Sustrans says: “We think the Bristol & Bath Railway Path is one of the most photogenic routes in the whole of the National Cycle Network and we look forward to seeing your photographs.”
