Help connect Holsworthy

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 Holsworthy’s Slow Ways.

Overall, much of the route is fine for walkers (except along the B3254 from Langdon's Farm to St Stephen's which is highly dangerous for all), but stiles, narrow bridges, rough pasture (sometimes with livestock), steep gradients on lanes and fields, and steps make it unsuitable for wheelers.
