Help connect Crewkerne

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 Crewkerne’s Slow Ways.

If you follow this spectacular walk you'll find far reaching views to rival any in those more well known places. There is a section with "Beware of the Bull" signs written in blood red, which is a little off putting, but there was no sign of the bull when I went....

Although the route follows a public footpath, there is no way through Lower Penhill Farm. Coming from the Yetminster direction, you will get stuck in the farmyard setting off their alarms. Use CreYet two instead....

This route is mostly off road, crossing farmland, but is tough going in the winter. Much of the farmland sections aren't very walker friendly in that the footpath signs are gone or damaged, there are fields of crops to cross, and many of the stiles and gateways are in a sad state of repair, often with barbed wire or electric fences presenting an additional hazard....

Decent route between Crewkerne and Ilminster via Hinton St George using footpaths and quiet lanes. Coming into Ilminster you go through a field with horses behind electric fences, and for some reason the land owner has put a barrier across the path....
