Shops and Services along the Way

    Walkers need to pan carefully regarding water and supplies across the SUW.

    Please be aware that between each town / village you will not encounter any services or supplies. Water can sometimes be obtained from local farmers should they be around to help but don’t rely on this!

    Should you require a pack lunch then please ask your accommodation provider, please ensure you notify them night before your departure. Should you have any special dietary needs you would be advised to contact them in advance.

    Below is a list of towns / villages and what services you can expect.
