Help connect Witheridge

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 Witheridge’s Slow Ways.

There were a couple of steep climbs to get the blood pumping, but considering this route travels across the rolling green hills of mid Devon it wasn't as hilly as you'd expect....

As the others have mentioned, there is a mix of footpaths and lanes, but the lanes are very quiet, the least quiet being from Langley to Burrow Cross, but you can't call it busy....

This is a good walk using a chunk of the Two Moors way then deviating off to Dulverton. Instead go left and walk 150 yds down the hill, then take the grassy path to the right and walk along parallel to the river....

Almost exclusively off roads, it’s peaceful and good walking. From Black Dog to Witheridge it’s also largely off road and uses old bridleways...

As you climb out of Lapford make sure you look back as the views from there are outstanding, with Dartmoor in the far distance....

A lovely walk with amazing views. Walked on a very hot day but even on the lanes there was plenty of shade. Lovely walk through woods and although some climbing needed nothing too bad....

Lots of great view in all directions especially on the Two Moors Way section between Witheridge and Black Dog....

Charles Hedley

Walk this route

A lovely route through the beautiful mid Devon countryside with wonderful views, including both Exmoor and Dartmoor. It starts in open fields and then mostly follows tracks and very quiet lanes. It is easy to follow (the first section is part of the Two Moors Way) but is quite hilly and can be very muddy so would be a real challenge on wheels....

But these roads are very quiet and make for an enjoyable walk. The walk along the river is very pleasant, and the field crossings above Lapford are a delight....

Long road sections, but on quiet "safe" lanes makes for an enjoyable route. Some very nice wooded sections on footpaths,,...

An option at Black Dog is to avoid walking along the road (unless going to the pub) and take the paths on the more direct line....

A longer walk than WITDUL one, using paths, rather than road. Great views and generally a well waymarked route. A long road section along the Two Moors Way, but quiet....

Walk this route

A mostly road route - albeit quiet lanes, with good countryside views. about 600 metres of this route after Nomansland is on a B road which is quite busy and with no pavement, in order to access the footpath. I recommend re-routing this section along the road to the north - WIVTIV2....
