Surveys

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.

From Princetown to Bellever Tor its a really nice, open & easy walk. Bellever Tor has to be my favorite Tor so far on the journey, able to stand in the clouds with views all around for miles.
From there it's fairly simple although in the later forests, around Fernworthy, there's a lot of deforestation so all the maps are a bit inaccurate in the size of the forests. But once you make it to Chagford it's a beautiful little town with a great camping shop for getting any new supplies.

This is a lovely route to walk, with a couple of caveats. It is remote and quite rugged in parts, and some of the views are stunning.

Caveats - do take the stretch to Hexworthy and don’t get tempted to take the short path to Postbridge. The short route is all along the main road and it’s no fun.

Second, the path from Postbridge to Chagford via the reservoir is poorly marked on the slow ways maps. The first 2-3 miles are fine but it’s then very hard to find the path and we ended up trying to navigate through the bog at the head of the river there. If you’re doing this, stay left of the marsh grass areas but keep the river on your left all the way until you’re climbing the bank at about 4 miles out from Postbridge. Note to Slow Ways - the mapping here is simply not good enough and can lead people right into dangerous ground particularly if it’s been wet.

After the bank, pick up the path as marked on Slow Ways and it leads to a couple of neolithic circles. Just after this the Slow Ways path goes straight on, but really the better path is to the right and into the forest above the reservoir. It’s cutting the corner but worth it.

All in all, this is a lovely but quite tough route that needs some improvements in marking before it can be rated top notch.
