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.

  1. Complete the survey training.

This would be a great route except that there is an access issue at Northwood near Chudleigh so I can’t recommend it. See alternative morchu two which avoids the issue, but is otherwise the same route.

For info, from the OS map it looks like there is access westwards from the footpath at Northwood to join an unmetalled road beside the river Teign (marked with green dots). However, the track currently has no recorded public highway status and on the ground is a gated farm access (although the gate was open). From the south the unmetalled road stops short, at the river and doesn’t connect to Northwood. There is an alternative route via a footpath east of Northwood though - see morchu two - adds a dogleg but does take you along a great holloway.
