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.

There are several points where this route intersects the bus route from Exeter to Crediton (369 or 5) if it is otherwise too long. It starts off going up through the picturesque Shobrooke Park past a lot of ancient enormous trees. There is a very clear path running alongside the village of Shobrooke to avoid the road (see picture 1) which has the bonus of a tire swing. The countryside is beautiful and quintessentially Devon. The Beer Engine in Newton St Cyres is a great option for a stop and the path along the Creedy a nice easy way to restart afterwards. From Upton Pyne and going up over Stoke Hill there are some paths where it is easy to pick the wrong one, but the views as you get higher up are great. Altogether a great route.

This is a good way to walk between Crediton and Exeter... better than Creexe One which involves some road walking that I'd prefer to avoid. I'm not sure if there is currently a better way to walk between these places.

I had the pleasure of walking this route with Tim (who designed the route) a couple of days ago.

We hiked the route with a group from the Devon & Cornwall Long Distance Walkers Association.

I can confirm that it's a really enjoyable way to walk between Exeter and Crediton and, in my opinion, far superior to Creexe One. This route is much safer and quieter. It's more pleasurable at the Exeter end too.

I'm sure I'll be walking this again. For people who are in Exeter I recommend catching a train or bus to Crediton and walking home. And for people in Crediton I recommend catching a train or bus to Exeter and walking home.

An alternative to CREEXE1, missing out Cowley Bridge and the A 377. This route is a little longer and climbs higher, above Stoke Hill. It is however a safer option. Although it crosses the A396 Tiverton Road, it is straight across. The route is pleasant and mostly on footpaths and minor Devon roads unpaved, but generally quiet.

I walked this route from Crediton to Exeter. How could I begin to summarise such a long, varied, interesting, and fantastic walk!

The route starts following pavements through Crediton before following a long stretch of footpaths and road walking alternating. None of the road walking segments were bad when I walked on a Sunday morning - fairly short and very quiet. It’s just tough to really relax on road segments, but none were concerning to me.

I particularly enjoyed the stretch along the River Creedy, as well as the incredible views from Stoke Hill.

There was some mud, so be careful if walking during wetter seasons!

I was worried about the crossing of the A396 Stoke Road, as it was a very fast road. The crossing is fine as long as the road is clear in both directions, and the path on the other side was very close.

I also really enjoyed the meandering into Exeter, through the university and quiet neighbourhoods before arriving at the heart of the city!.
