Help connect Chulmleigh

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 Chulmleigh’s Slow Ways.

Great hilly walk through rural Devon, with great views at the top of the hills. I imagine that ordinarily you can just step over it, but there was more water in the stream than normal, so it was a bit of a stretch....

Beautiful hills & valleys, although the public footpath leading to George Nympton had a lot of sealed closed gates you'll have to climb over as they're very old, haven't been repaired & would simply fall over without being tied shut. So you won't see the public footpaths signs, keep an eye on your maps! South Molton is also essential just before Exmoor as it's the only place I've seen since Plymouth that has a standard supermarket, Stansbury, allowing you to top up your food without crazy prices....

Just beware the descent before Rocky Hill, it's all loose rocks on a hill & not for the easily trippable....

A lovely local inn to be found at the end of the walk to partake of some much appreciated liquid refreshment....

However, the other end of the closed path was accessible, with no signage, so if walking from Chulmleigh and following a map you would walk the path, only to get stuck and have to retrace your steps. I have uploaded ChuLap 3 which avoids this problem...

You are quickly on to quite a long stretch of lane walking, but these are quiet and the hedgerows don't completely block out the countryside....

Some pretty impressive views which make some of the climbing worth it! Done during Autumn, the colours surrounding you make you stop and stare at several points in awe. Some pretty mucky bits in places, but overall very enjoyable....

A muddy section of a not well defined path near the river crossing at Chawleigh Barton Woods apart the route was easy to follow....

I chose to take the farm track around to the East and South so as not to damage the crop, but I suspect this route may be muddy in winter or after a long rainy period....

The route meanders through lots of charming lanes, tracks and paths, passing woods, farms and good some views. The B3226 makes it really tricky to create a safe route using rights of way for this Slow Way....

as long as you don't mind lots of walking down lanes and (after its been wet) some muddy sections. If you don't like walking down Devon lanes with occasional tractors and cars, you might not enjoy this route....
