Description

This route re-locates a gate and path into their correct location (a minor shift of about 30m) and redirects the path to avoid a millpond (the pond is shown on the expanded Slowways map - path going through it! - but not on the explorer OS for some reason). Otherwise it’s the same route

This is a pleasant easy and level route, and very similar.to Somilc one, but with a slight deviation following the country lane into Knole, (avoiding having to swim across the millpond which doesn’t show on OS Explorer!) and a more accurate tracking of the path across the field just before Knole. The middle half of the route is very pretty and quiet before the rumble of the main A303 kicks in as you get nearer to Ilminster.
