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.

Helen Gough surveyed Hemilm twoWalk this route
I really enjoyed parts of this walk, but there were also a couple of sections that made me swear loudly (sorry universe). My first problem was at Bolham Farm where I had to walk through a field of cows. I threw my dog over the gate, and jumped over myself, swearing loudly the whole time. I was in a foul mood by now, but immediately after this, the route follows a ridge top walk with really lovely views of rolling green countryside. Parts of this section were tricky without signage through the farms. The best news is that this section is very short, just a few yards and after this there really aren't any serious problems. I really enjoyed walking through Jan Hobbs Nature Reserve, which gave shade and wildlife after several miles of lanes. All in all, it's a good walk, with some really great highlights, just be prepared!...
Firstly at the Hemyock the route is plotted along field boundaries, not rights of way. Secondly it has a stretch of walking along the A303 where there is no path....

From the Monument to Hemyock the route is often through quiet woodland. When the route opens out the views are brilliant across the Culm Valley. The lanes on the route are quiet, I didn't come across any traffic on them....

Much of these are quiet, but at the Cullompton end it is mostly on road all the way to Ashill around 5 miles....
A little on unpaved but slow roads at Millhayes before a path uphill....
A scenic and enjoyable route up and over the Blackdown Hills. Some of the route on the day included a small boggy section and there was a dark and unlit underpass under the M5, fine by daylight....
