The Limestone Link is a 36 miles (58 km) long-distance footpath from the Mendip Hills in Somerset to Cold Ashton in Gloucestershire. It is marked by an Ammonite waymarker.

The Mendip section starts between Churchill and Rowberrow, near Dolebury Warren and passes, roughly west to east, above the villages of Blagdon and Compton Martin close to the northern boundary of the Mendip Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and passes through West Harptree. It then passes through Temple Cloud, Hallatrow and Durcott before turning north through Dunkerton and Southstoke south of Bath.

The path then follows Cam Brook to Midford and then along Midford Brook before joining the Avon Walkway at the Dundas Aqueduct going north alongside the River Avon and the Kennet and Avon Canal past Claverton and the Claverton Pumping Station to Bathampton where it crosses the A4 and goes through Batheaston and then following a small river through Northend and St Catherine. The final part of the path goes past Monkswood reservoir and alongside St Catherines Brook to Cold Ashton.

It connects with the Mendip Way, and the Cotswold Way.
