Start of leg 5.

Directions to start

From A303 Southfields roundabout head into South Petherton crossing 2 mini roundabouts to T junction turn right and at bottom of hill turn left to East Lambrook. At T junction turn right and you will eventually come to the Mill continue to bridge and turn left just before it. Keep on this road until the T junction in Kingsbury. Turn right and pass the Wyndam Arms, turn right again and park in the Village Hall car park. From Langport take the road to Crewkerne, Muchelney and Kingsbury Episcopi. Please do not arrive late  as this is also the Finish line.



We follow the east variation of the trail.


  • Route finding on this stage needs careful attention, it is not obvious at times.
  • At Stoke turn right to climb hill, after 50 yards there is a path up some steps opposite the car park. This path leads up to a path , cross this and head up towards monument. You need to then head left and look out for a path up stone steps to the monument. Once at the top follow the ramparts and drop down then to a gate way into into the car park by the Prince of Wales.
  • We have a checkpoint at the Prince of Wales (Grid Ref ST479169) where you will be registered, 15 minutes penalty for no shows.

  • From the checkpoint follow road around to the left and behind the pub until just before the Ham Hill centre and turn left past the  BBQ area (See the map below). At Norton Car Park is the finish of leg 5 and the start of leg 6.
