The Macmillan Way West is a 102 mile long distance path forming a link between the main Macmillan Way at Castle Cary and the South West Coast National Trail at Barnstaple.
Macmillan Way West
A 102 mile branch of the main Macmillan Way ( LinkExternal link ), 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.
Macmillan Way
A 290 mile route devised to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support to which all proceeds are donated. It runs along sea banks and river banks, from Boston, across the Lincolnshire fens via Stamford, eventually to Abbotsbury on the Dorset Coast. From the fens it follows, as near as possible, the course of the oolitic limestone belt, called 'Cotswold' stone in that area, but found in slightly varying form from South Yorkshire to Dorset.
The Way provides a link with the Viking Way at Oakham, the Thames Path National Trail near Thames Head and with the South West Coast Path National Trail at the finish. It also has a Macmillan Way West (LinkExternal link ) from Castle Cary to Barnstaple.
