  • Update 02 April 2022. The seawall is now open as far as the station bridge at coastguard cottages. However, it is still necessary to cross the railway and approach the station via Lanherne and Richmond Place. The current intention is to re-open the final short stretch on 23 July 2022.

  • "Bl---- Bonkers". I spent some time producing NEWTEI 2 because NEWTEI 1 suffered 2 significant flaws. 1: The original GPX was too imprecise, notably where it confused one reviewer into taking an inappropriate wrong turning at Shaldon Bridge to cross under the railway line. 2: A quite worrying apparent failure to understand and appreciate the safety restrictions on timing because the track is intertidal between the A380 bridge and Shaldon. I am concerned that this reviewer appears to have walked the route without due respect to the clearly displayed warning signs (or my description) on completing below half tide. He has in fact rated not the NEWTEI 2 gpx route but his route on going "off-track" (something which it is not possible to do successfully and which is never necessary anyway when completed below half tide). Not sure what (if anything?) needs doing. Reported 05 Aug 2023
  • Hi. On Tuesday 18.05.2021 I walked route Ellche (from Chester to Ellesmere Port). Yesterday I tried to submit a review and also undertake a verification. I had selected 15 photos (all less than 10MB). I tried to submit the report twice having taken ages to load-up the photos (which all showed up in photo preview after they loaded). However, each time I pressed submit after completing the verification section I got an 'Error 500: Sorry, something has gone wrong' message. Today I have tried again with 15 photos and got it again each time. I then tried with just 3 photos and the same has happened. I'm not sure if the issue is with me in terms of photos or text format or with the website etc? For example, in addition to the 15 photos my comments were fairly long - not quite an A4 sheet at font size 11 - but there is no indication of any word or character limit. Also, I first wrote up the comments in Word and then copied and paste to the Comments Box (so not sure if that's an issue?). SOS! Thanks. Paul Reported 20 May 2021
  • Having surveyed Newoln today: Errors/bugs - I gave this a 3 for path surface grade – it has been recorded as U. - I gave this a Y for mobile phone coverage – it has been recorded as ‘no information’ - I gave this a Y for free of flight of steps – it has been recorded as ‘don’t know’ Lack of clarity - When uploading photos there is no acknowledgement of uploading successful once you do it. Can’t tell if its worked or not, which is frustrating. - I skipped the gradients and camber questions (I didn’t measure them) – but they are shown as 0%. This is misleading – implies it’s flat. - A red X next to ‘Possible to avoid steps’ implies there are steps, even when I ticked to indicate there were no flights of steps. Suggest change to say ‘Possible to avoid steps, if applicable’ General comment - Please can there be a way to edit your own previously uploaded survey? This would mean any errors made in uploading can be fixed immediately, or data amended in light of new info (e.g. adding features later if not done first time). If this feature already exists -please nake clear how to choose it. Reported 11 May 2021
  • Website looking good but as others have said the paging needs a bit of refinement. How to link - enjoy responsibly link returns a blank page - verify link paragraph 3 ‘beshould’ needs a space, paragraph 4 ‘aa route’ needs a link?, ‘three people think’ looks odd - survey link paragraph 1 is missing an ‘and’ - add link, how can you add is missing a full stop between transport and find, Scotland click here is not a link Great Britain and United Kingdom are used interchangeably - is this deliberate? About section No mention of ‘in the news’ and ‘who’s making it happen’ sections Information looks good and easy to read, but have you considered the look and feel of the pages and any accessibility requirements to make the site accessible to everyone?

  • The end of the route between Kirkcaldy Promenade and the railway station should be changed, because the road from Abbotshall Road is private with no access to the station. From Whytescauseway, it should instead turn right and go via Hunter Place (past the bus station), Wemyssfield, and through the war memorial gardens, see: This also affects the start of the Kirdys route. Thanks. Reported 27 Dec 2022
  • 04.07.21 I was uploading my review of Pathar1 on which I had submitted the allowed total of 15 pictures that I had referenced in the written review. It appears to have deleted all but the 1st 3 pictures "Oops! An Error Occurred The server returned a "413 Payload Too Large". Something is broken. Please let us know what you were doing when this error occurred. We will fix it as soon as possible. Sorry for any inconvenience caused." Reported 04 Jul 2021
  • Riverside path in Mold does not exist. Fallen into river. Could use nearby back lane instead. Dangerous crossing at grade of 3 lane main trunk road on bend. Better to use underbridge and public path from Wylfa roundabout. Will suggest new route in due course. Also website does not seem to recognise MOLD as a town name, nor to allow deletion/correction Reported 20 Apr 2021
  • I believe there is no safe crossing on the A1(M) between Stotfold and Caldecote although there are old rights of way on each side of the motorway here. I would recommend routing via Radwell and along Norton Mill Lane which goes below the A1(M), then a bridleway to Ashwell Road, then a byway from Ashwell Road to Ashwell (I have plotted this route, length 14.3 miles, but have not yet been able to upload it). Reported 23 Apr 2021
  • This route has access problems in two places that mean it is 'no go'. The M8 crossing and Sighthill are under development, and this part of the route can't be used. Then, near to Bishopbriggs, the footpath linking Littlehill Golf Club to Balornock Road, passing east of Stobhill Hospital, is so overgrown it doesn't feel safe underfoot. This may be a seasonal thing, in any case I decided since Glabis needs a reroute I would avoid trying to use this path. (Two other routes also use this path, Bisste One (Bishopbriggs - Stepps) and Bisshe One (Bishopbriggs - Shettleston), neither has been reviewed yet). I've put up a revised Glabis route which is more direct and definitely walkable! (Although more busy road), and recommend Glabis One is retired. Reported 17 Sep 2021
  • Hi, I wrote a review for a route, and saved it, but it does not display. I wrote is again, same thing. Are reviews working? Thanks Robert Reported 28 Apr 2021
  • This is a follow-up to your previous request #1086 "Problem with a Route: Bexda..." Hi Cristie Oddly BexDar 2 =10125, which was the twin of this, isn't displaying properly on my laptop or my phone. Text, photos, etc is there, but the big map and route line is an entirely white space. Maybe there was an upload problem after all. I've just double checked, the same thing is still happening. No route line and no base map. Legend and buttons on top right are there but have no effect. Have refreshed page several times. Bex Dar One and other routes display ok though. Come to think of it neither One nor Two show on the progress map although both have positive reviews. And, just checked, if you click on the route line of BexDar 2 from another page it takes you to 10126=BexDar 3! I've got copies of the two texts and photos so if it's easiest to just delete BexDar Two and start again on a fresh BexDar route I could do that. Daisy Reported 25 Nov 2022
  • Jock's Road / Tolmouth remains inaccessible, Storm Arwen wiped out much of Glen Doll's forests and the path between Glen Doll ranger base and the end of the forest is still blocked. Access is possible by walking up the South Esk, going left round by Loch Esk and reaching Crow Craigies that way, then down to Braemar Reported 29 Apr 2022
  • 😝😤Hi Cristie Apologies for the mess that is the reviews on NEWTEI2. I've had problems in getting hold of Tony and Julie - they can be hard to tie down! Tods is Tony. Chronologically, the first review ("We walked this . . . . . ") is the genuine Tods review entered for him by Julie. Julie then encountered problems in logging on herself and ended up entering her review with Tony's credentials! This appeared not to have worked and so she sent it again (you'll notice the slight differences). Both should have been attributed to Julie Squire (as in the Julie Squire reviews to CHUDAW2 and DAWTOP3). I compounded the problem by adding a comment to the first, plugging the tide issue, and addressing it to "Tods". Don't despair of us! It seems to me that Tods' original review ("We walked this route on Thursday . . . ") should stand. Julie's first review should be attributed to Julie Squire not Tods and the comment(s) deleted (you will see I also made a hash of that! So both comments!). I suspect this may not be possible probably because of the way the algorithms are written or because it amounts to tampering which could be deemed inappropriate. In this case perhaps both Julie's reviews could be deleted and I will work with Julie to restore her access and upload a new review. Annoyed with myself because I should have recognised the different styles, albeit both entered by Julie, but was of the mind that all 3 had been entered by Tony whom I suspect is a bit of a Jamie Oliver - a very clever, successful and delightful character who chooses, rightly, to delegate the written word to others. I am very anxious to resolve things with the utmost sensitively. Sorry, last thing you want on a Monday morning! Just let me know how you want to resolve it. Incidentally, they are both keen to do another and I'm inviting them to do Kingsteignton to Teignmouth which requires attention because it relies on a path that has never existed! Also requires hopping on a double decker bus to start which was a bit of a bonus getting to Newton Abbot 😊. Tony Reported 04 Sep 2023
  • This is a follow-up to your previous request #751 "Problem with a Route: Carki..."  Hi,  Regarding the route Heylan One, Heysham to Lancaster, it has been reviewed 3 times, twice stating that the route is good enough and 1 flagging "maybe" for reasonsof access. The route currently has no "snail" tick. All 3 walking groups commented on the tricky area, crossing the dual carriageway. The original route uses an underpass which is not a PRoW and at the Heysham (west) end there is a locked gate. The alternative uses existing PRoWs but needs to cross the busy main road. However there are footpaths on both sides and a wide island, with paved section, in the centre of the carriageways so is safe to cross. This modification to the original route solves the problem. The rest of the route is fine.  Your route suggestions state that you do not want minor modifications to an existing route to become a new route which would require 3 more groups to walk and verify it. I have walked both versions and the road crossing option is the best, no need to climb gates or trespass. I suggest therefore that Heylan One could be modified as per the blue highlight in the attached map of the section and give the route its "snail" tick. I am sure this scenario exists elsewhere in the country.  I look forward to your comments.  Best regards   Neil Herbert  (Lancaster Ramblers) Heylan 1 Orig. Rev.jpg Reported 18 Aug 2023
  • I have downloaded and printed the survey forms and completed them by hand. How to I send these to you. There are supplementary documents on an error in the route. I was hoping to scan these and send them as a pdf, but cannot find such a facility on the slow ways website. Ken Perrett Reported 30 Apr 2021
  • Hi I've just seen your email asking for applications for storytelling commissions. I have some questions I can't see the answers to. [I'm looking at the Colchester-Norwich waylist, so I'll talk about that] - Doing the entire 90mi walk in one go seems unlikely! Am I right that I can break it up in any way I want? eg. can I walk 1.5 routes on one trip, 0.5 route the next time, 2 the next, etc. Or for a given route do I have to have walked that in one day? [I think the answer is that it is very free form - as long as I have genuinely walked it, and the photos will confirm that, I can do it however makes sense] - the goal seems to be adding 3 reviews for all the routes in a waylist (so for each of the 9 routes in this waylist). Does it have to be the same 3 people for all of the routes? eg. could I walk Colchester-Manningtree with Alice and Bob, then Manningtree-Ipswich with Bob and Charlie, etc. Or does it have to have a “core” of 3 people that do all the routes? THanks, Anthony Reported 02 Feb 2024
