Help connect Burton

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 Burton’s Slow Ways.

Overall this part of the MacMillan Way suffers from poor stewardship and as a Slow Ways route it was not passable - we had to do a bit of road walking on a really busy stretch to avoid an inaccessible part of the suggested route....

Walk this route

Between Littleton Drew and Luckington was incredibly difficult walking - there was electric fencing blocking the first field twice, stiles were very overgrown (and one was completely broken and impassable), and there was limited footpath signage and no discernible route for much of it, meaning tramping through thigh high meadows over pretty rough ground. It didn't feel like an accessible or advisable route for anyone without a fair amount of experience (and a good map) to undertake. The section from Luckington to Sherston was much better though and would recommend this stretch....
