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

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.

Directions to start

Haselbury Mill is located just North of the A30 just under 1 ½  miles
East of Crewkerne.
If travelling from Ham Hill head back down hill and turn left to A356, left again and follow this road for 3 ½ miles turn left to Haselbury Plucknett and Haselbury Mill, Lower Severalls (gardens).
Drop down short hill to left turn (narrow bridge) the finish of leg 6 and parking is in the small paddock field just after this turning, follow any signage for parking.

Leg 7 start will be over the A30, runners will be briefed in Parking area and
walked across this busy road to the other side for the start.


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.
Shortly after the start you will cross a footbridge, this may cause some congestion.
After ¾ mile look for footbridge on left you can follow the Liberty Trail across this to next bridge and climb steep hill (climbed twice on the Haselbury
Trail Race). Cross stile and aim more or less in same direction until a stile
should be visible to the right of some old buildings. The official Guide route
doubles back before the first bridge and can be followed but is easy to miss
and was overgrown.  
From North Perrott after the road, the section to Pipplepen can be rough under foot and not obvious. Take extra care when crossing the railway line.
Continue onto road, past the farm and at the brow of last hill before it drops into village take path into field on right. We hope to Marshal this.  Follow this to
the left into a small valley that comes out Opposite the Church Path in village.
Take extreme care crossing road at South Perrott. Cross and up to Church, turn left. This should be a safer route than the main road.
