Devon, Somerset

A branch of the main Macmillan Way, parting at Castle Cary it crosses the Somerset Levels and the Quantocks and can be linked with the South West Coast Path National Trail at Minehead. It then crosses Exmoor and follows the Tarka Trail to Barnstaple, again linking with the South West Coast Path. Macmillan routes thus enable a 346-mile walk across England from Boston to Barnstaple.


Strider News - August 2019 (Path Update)

PATH CLOSURE:: This notice is posted to let you know that part of these footpaths will be closed from 1st September 2019 to 30th November 2019 .


River Parrett Trail Macmillan Way West East Deane Way


The closure is to allow for dredging works to take place on 2.2km of the River Parrett in Somerset, between Stathe and Burrowbridge. We regret that public access along these permissive paths has to be withdrawn temporarily to allow the works to proceed safely T hese essential works are to reduce the risk of flooding in the area and are expected to last up to 12 weeks. The scheme is being led for Somerset Rivers Authority (SRA) by the Parrett Internal Drainage Board (IDB), working closely with the Environment Agency and Natural England.You can also find out more information about the project on the SRA website

An alternative to the closure is on the south side of the River Parrett but is NOT RECOMMENDED due to the narrow nature of the road between Stathe and Burrowbridge
