We are working to build-up a picture of what routes look like. To do that we are asking volunteers to survey routes so that we can communicate features, obstacles and challenges that may make a route desirable or not.

Slow Ways surveyors are asked to complete some basic online training, but they are not vetted. If you are dependent on the survey information being correct in order to complete a route, we recommend that you think critically about the information provided. You may also wish to wait until more than one survey has been completed.

Help people know more about this route by volunteering to submit a survey.

A walk of two halves!

The first part was very poor - overgrown foliage, unclear paths, electric fences, broken styles and uneven footing. We had to go off route due to the path being inaccessible in places - a real shame given the scenery was lovely.

The second half was a delight - very clear pathways, even footing and gentle inclines. There were some styles and (very) narrow gates which could be challenging for those with mobility issues or if you are in a bigger body.

Overall, despite lovely scenery I would not recommend this route until some serious maintenance work has been done to restore the path.

I would not recommend the Acton to Luckington leg of this trail if you are a beginner, as it was blocked, poorly signposted and maintained - broken stiles, electric fences, really uneven ground, overgrowth etc.

The Luckington to Sherston path was full of vibrant wildlife, wonderful buildings and was much more accessible. For plus-size walkers: I am a UK20 and this part of the route had one narrow stone stile and several kissing gates - these were ok to navigate but walkers in a higher size range may find these less accessible.

Overall this part of the MacMillan Way suffers from poor stewardship and as a Slow Ways route it was not passable - we had to do a bit of road walking on a really busy stretch to avoid an inaccessible part of the suggested route. Traffic was really fast along this road so it was an inelegant solution - but preferable to the suggested path on the day.

Between Littleton Drew and Luckington was incredibly difficult walking - there was electric fencing blocking the first field twice, stiles were very overgrown (and one was completely broken and impassable), and there was limited footpath signage and no discernible route for much of it, meaning tramping through thigh high meadows over pretty rough ground. It didn't feel like an accessible or advisable route for anyone without a fair amount of experience (and a good map) to undertake. The section from Luckington to Sherston was much better though and would recommend this stretch.
