Leg 6
Ham Hill (Norton Car Park) to Haselbury Mill (6.6 miles)

Register from 12:30

Start: 13:00  Cut off time: 14:15 (1 h 15)

An overview map and a web link to the official River Parrett Trail Guide are available on the ‘Event Rules’ page.

Unfortunately in the River Parrett Trail Guide it is described in the opposite direction but may be of use.



The rest of this page will be left unchanged for reference but the new guide is the definitive race route.

Directions to start
Depending where you are traveling from Ham Hill is located Just South of the A303 and the town of Stoke sub Hamdon.
The country park is signed from the A303.
If travelling from previous leg then head South to Martock (A356 junction or unclassed road over A303) or South Petherton to Southfields Roundabout to A356 junction. Ham Hill Junction is just past local shop and pub. Norton Car Park is the 2nd parking area on the right. 


This short leg follows
the guide all the way and will finish just beyond Haselbury Mill

You need to kept your wits
about you in places along the route, some turning are not clear.

Deviation: At Merriott once on the road past Scotts Nurseries (sadly no more) you can continue down the road to the Merriott social club and turn left down Tail Mill lane rather than as the guide route.           
At the end of Tail Mill Lane there is a very busy road crossing, please take care. We have also been advised that the permissive path following the road crossing is no longer available. Please turn left at the road and then right after crossing the road into the official path.
This path is very uneven.
The route will finish in the field opposite Haselbury Mill.
