Slow Ways linking Bruton and Castle Cary, Frome, Maiden Bradley, Mere, Shepton Mallet, Wincanton

Help connect Bruton

Many Slow Ways have several route options. Some will be better than others, or good for different reasons.

Our goal is for each Slow Way to have at least one route that is verified and surveyed. To be verified – and get its snail badge – a route needs at least three positive reviews.

Give a hike and help get a for every one of Bruton’s Slow Ways.

After the wooded section and approaching Holt Road, I totally struggled to find this path. To avoid the trouble, I stayed on the farm access road which landed on Holt Road a bit south of where the Slow Way path crosses. It seemed to me there were a lot of paths that started with closed and locked gates you had to climb over, and then the paths were really not clear or through fields of cows. Had a few other serious navigation difficulties in the next bit of farmland after South Brewham - the paths just didn't quite exist where Slow Ways and OSMaps said they should, and it was getting really frustrating! - For much of the route, the path quality was very good (good dirt road or compacted dirt path) - Minor but really frustrating navigation issues, combined with fields of cows that just scare me...

South of Evercreech it's field after field full of cows and rather dispiriting....

Very pleasant route with some great views over a fruit farm. Two stiles, one a low one and the other by passable by going through the adjacent gate. As highlighted by a previous review, there is a very short steep section which could be slippy in the wet....

I have only walked this route as far as South Brewham, so cannot comment on the remainder. However the section from Colinshayes to S Brewham cannot be followed on the ground without either GPS or map and compass. It is not a beginner's route and not easy to navigate....

Unless sure-footed take an alternative route by continuing on the road through Cole and turning left into Sunnyhill Lane....
