Good Slow Way with varied terrain and scenery.

I walked Frome -> Maiden Bradley. I loved the vibrant market street in Frome as a starting point. Fun to walk through and explore (when open!).

The segment along the A362 is short enough, and after a steep uphill segment after the Slow Way route turns towards Frome Station, there's a long stretch of path along the River. This path is VERY overgrown in parts, and often overgrown with stinging plants! In other places, the path was a bit muddy or had low-hanging trees. The main obstacle, though, was the stinging plants!

Approaching Feltham Lane, there were many people out and some dogs, too, and the open fields were easier for walking and beautiful! The path isn't totally aligned with what exists on the map, but it's not too difficult to figure out how to go.

Approaching the B3092 the path goes through a succession of fields (and gates), and the last field had several cows in it. I was nervous to walk through but they didn't mind me at all.

The stretch between Vinney Lane and St. Katherine's church was difficult. For much of it, the path was a bit difficult to follow, but I just generally headed in the direction I expected and made it through. In other segments, the path was very overgrown (again with stinging plants!). Walking along the B3092 wasn't extremely pleasant, but it was short enough. I did see several deer out in these fields!

The stretch through Longleat was a bit surreal, because it totally felt like I was trespassing on a paid attraction, but I really don't think I was. I didn't pass through any closed gates, and no one stopped me. Really cool to see the house up close!

Horningsham looked lovely, and a huge sign offering "COLD PINTS" on a very hot day was very attractive to me...

Where the Slow Way route goes up Pottle Street a little bit before heading back into the field, just continue straight across and don't go up Pottle Street - there's no path there!

Road walking into Maiden Bradley was perfectly pleasant.

Overall, a good route, but the couple difficult navigation spots and overgrown paths made it tough to give it anything above three stars!.
