Honeybourne Line Cycle Path
Malvern Road Bridge

Honeybourne Line Cycle Path runs where the old Honeybourne Railway Line once was, which lead from Cheltenham to Stratford-upon-Avon. Part of this line from Cheltenham Racecourse to Toddington has been restored and steam trains of Gloucestershire-Warwickshire Railway runs along the track today.

This popular cycle and foot path leads from Cheltenham Spa railway station through Winston Churchill Memorial Gardens towards Prince of Wales Stadium in St. Paul's, and then towards Wyman’s Brook and Pittville. It is also an important wildlife corridor and small mammals and foxes are frequent visitors. Many species of butterfly including a Small Blue colony have been seen along the line and it has a selection of common native plants usually associated with disused railway lines.
