The Guild Wheel once a beautiful area for walking in has now become a "share with care" area with cyclists. It is quite frankly an accident waiting to happen. Cyclist's tear around it at breakneck speeds racing each other, none of them seem to have...More

I have walked various sections of the Wheel either alone or with family. I've found myself feeling uncomfortable walking alone along some stretches of it and now stick to busier sections when on my own. A good way to get fresh air and exercise. A...More

I took a friend's dog for a walk around around only a fraction of the Guild Wheel and what an enjoyable walk it was! It was hard to believe that not far from where I were, there was a bustling, busy and noisy city and...More

Have walked the Guild Wheel. Excellent for the main part but lacklustre coming from the area near the car showrooms. For the main part, out in the countryside enjoying the outdoors and views. One or two climbs but certainly manageable
