CORRECTION NEEDED TO THE ROUTE GPX:
I have noticed that the GPX uploaded on route creation is incorrect. It carries straight on at approx. 10.2k to join the A339 instead of taking a right turn to follow the footpath. As per the route description, the second half of this route should be as Newbkin one. I do not recommend joining the A339 at this point and wouldn't have rated 3* if I had spotted earlier.
At the moment, I think the only way I can correct this is to create a Newbkin three with the correct GPX but with the temporary path closure potentially in place until July next year it doesn't seem to make sense to have three routes all with the same path closure.

Settlement pages say "N people have contributed to Settlement X's Slow Ways", but it seems to be a simple count of reviews, not including authors of new routes or discounting repeated names. E.G. Edenbridge: it says 4 people should be 2 people, or maybe 3 if you include the original routes as a single anon. author. Not serious but it does seem to be a bug given that review numbers and number of routes drawn are explicitly stated (for SWays) elsewhere on the same page.

I walked Cirfai two on 3 July and have submitted a review and a survey. However the route details are no longer visible. I just get an error 500 and a promise someone is looking in to it.
By the way searching for a route from Cirencester to Fairford produces 3 results but only Cirfai two was visible until the above. The other 2 don't show anything. Cirfai one is presumably excluded because it's described as dangerous in two's description but three is a mystery.

Photo upload problem to a saved review from Android. The second photo seems to overwrite the first, then the third also overwrote it again. I just saved at that point and no photos are showing yet, so not sure if 3 or just 1 uploaded. I.e. is it broken or just looking that way, or if I just need to be more delicate (I'd argue too delicate given the sometimes slow reactions of other parts of the site). Sorry it's bad news, I'm still excited to try the drag + drop on my laptop.

I've just reviewed TolMot1. It now has 3 reviews but its not been accepted as a Reviewed Slow Way. I think that's because a safety issue was flagged on the route. I can confirm that the issue (having to walk a long stretch in the road - no pavement or footpath) has been removed now. The relevant building works have added/replaced the pavement. My review has 3 photos of that pavement.
So what happens now to get the route confirmed? It's a useful connection between some nice off-road sections, even if the route itself is somewhat urban.

Posted a review of this one (Walkin Two) about 3.30 this afternoon (03.06.2023) but it hasn't shown up.
I posted it using the app: when I pressed 'submit' it appeared to be processing it correctly, counting up the photographs as it loaded them, and then returning me to the route page when done. But ... no review, no 4 stars :'(

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:

The walk I've done using the app is not showing up in my account on the website when I'm logged in.
Can we also report app bugs here too?
1. On the walk today the app crashed, when I reopened it, it allowed me to carry on from where I was (which was a relief). but it just marked my progress with a dotted purple line, and didn't update the distance correctly.
2. When I got to the destination, I didn't know how to tell the app I'd made it, and paused it, then ended it, and I think it didn't record the whole distance!

I was having a look at this walk with the intention of walking it. I ran out of time, so haven't tried it but... I noticed on the online map that the gpx doesn't start/end that close to the nodes of Euston and Paddington. It's already got 3 reviews and a snail so would be a shame to create another just for this correction, but it would be nice if the route was neat and tidy at start and end!

I reported this via Twitter last week but I think this is the better place for it. I would like to understand what happened to the four photo-only surveys that I submitted about two weeks ago (WESCOT 1, WESCOT 3, COTMEL 1 and BOTLON 2) before I submit any more. I got to the end of the process and completed the survey questions without seeing any errors, but none of these photo surveys are visible on the site. Using Firefox on an Acer laptop running Windows 10, the photos were all taken on a Samsung Android phone. The COTMEL 1 one in particular had a lot of photos and took over an hour to submit, so I am very reluctant to start it again.

This is a follow-up to your previous request #1100 "Problem with a Review: 7474"
Thank you for your reply and apologies for my slow response.
In deciding if my 'variation' warrants being listed as a new route I find several things in the 10 point methodology you listed are in conflict!
I see the variation as being safer (point 1) as there is less walking along main roads.
However it is less accessible for those with buggies or wheelchairs (point 3) as it goes along tracks in the green areas rather than paved paths.
The variation is also in agreement with points 5 and 9 i.e. being more 'off-road' and 'be enjoyable and beautiful' as it goes through more green areas.
The route variation follows the start of the Itchen Way, an established route, (point 10) which I'll add to my description.
How do you balance out these conflicting points?
I shall most probably leave my review as a review of the existing route rather than add it as a new route unless you advise otherwise.

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

Please can you remove Maiasc Zero which is showing in my reviews waylist THIS LINK https://beta.slowways.org/Route/Maiasc/9258. It's another blank one.
However, please be careful about https://beta.slowways.org/SlowWay/Maiasc. The text says there is no route for Maidenhead to Ascot, but the map shows my Skipton to Cross Hills route, although clicking that takes you to SkiCro Zero https://beta.slowways.org/Route/Skicro/9258 which is blank. I re-uploaded SkiCro Three https://beta.slowways.org/Route/Skicro/9890 which seems to be okay.
There seems to be an ongoing occasional problem when uploading a new route, possibly when someone else happens to submit something at the same time. There is now no Maidenhead to Ascot at all, and my Skipton to Cross Hills disappeared (but I uploaded it again), and also when I added Preston Leyland (PreLey Two) it somehow got linked to Thorniehill-Barrhead near Glasgow as far as my waylist map goes https://beta.slowways.org/Route/Bartho/9391.

"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.

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).

Hi, I reviewed a route (Levsto one) and indicated that it needed to be removed, as it passed through a high metal fence. I set up an alternative route (Levsto 2). I am a bit puzzled why Levsto 1 has been marked as ‘possibly verified’. Surely it could be marked as having a problem, or it even could be removed? Would it require another negative review before being removed? There is a similar issue with Stoden 1 and 2. I would survey routes if they had been verified. Thanks, Ian Vaughan

This slowway begins after crossing the railway bridge and advises walkers to follow North Hill. This access is on a private estate and has been securely gated. There is an easy alternative that follows Trevarthisn Road and Menecuddle Road. I have added a map to my review to clarify this. I have no idea if the closure is legal or not but a local resident was most vociferous, also the alternative is reasonable and sees a lot of established foot and cycle traffic. I viewed this on a busy Saturday morning.

Hello, this route was brought to my attention today. I don't know whether you are aware but the section between the river and the canal across the top of Wheldrake Ings Nature Reserve has no access rights and is not a public right of way. There is a permissive path from the river bridge partway along the river and into the middle of the reserve but it does not link up with the canal.
The reason there is restricted access for staff, volunteers and the public is because it is an internationally important site for ground nesting birds and for tens of thousands of birds resting on their migration from Scandinavia to north Africa in winter and back the other way in spring.
That route is also cut for hay by tenant farmers and then aftermath grazed with their stock. The gates are locked and there are signs on them marking them as No unauthorised access and explaining the need to avoid disturbance of the wildlife.
Can you kindly remove the unauthorised route across our land between the river on the left and the canal on the right and notify me when it has been done.
Thanks for your help

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.

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.

For some time DawTop1 has not worked - it returns an ERROR 500. The Rail
Resilience Project has caused closure of sections to which I referred in
an earlier review (long lost I suspect) and which also led Dan to create
DawTop 2. Should it still exist my original review is no longer valid
and neither is Dan's as the major part of his diversion is now no longer
necessary. I had posted a July date when the final short stretch was to
be opened but unexpected foundation problems have forced this to be
delayed and the latest permission states the closure is valid "until 07
September 2022 or when completed whichever is the earlier" (my italics).
(The sensitivities of local Parish Councillors have been offended!) I
felt some update was called for and have submitted a DawTop3 to which I
have added a review and survey to repeat/update data conveyed in my
original review/survey. I leave you to decide what further tidying-up is
required but it might be worth renaming DawTop3 to DawTop1 and removing
the malfunctioning DawTop1 and Dan's alternative (DawTop 2) while
retaining his review, photos and validation and Pilea's review and
validation in the new DawTop1 (aka Dawtop3) if they are agreeable? All 3
are exactly the same track which is indubitably the most appropriate
from 07 September 2022.
There are some other issues. I have submitted it with the original
DawTop .gpx although I am a little uncomfortable with it. At times it
drifts up to 25m from the true track although this is not usually an
issue - just means someone following the screen track zoomed in would be
aware of apparently criss-crossing the mainline railway on occasions and
paddling below the low-water tide line on others! However, it starts
from inside Geronimo's coffee bar, ploughs straight through the station
booking office walls and exits into the station car park dead-end on the
wrong side of the tracks! I have allowed for this in the review.
However, if required I can re-walk the route after 7 September (or when
possible) and submit a new .gpx track.
In the description and review I have also drawn attention to the
irregularity of the ferry timetable and the complications of arriving to
learn the next ferry is due at 1000 on the first Friday of next month
given that a further walk of up to 3km is the only way out to
civilisation! Seemed important.
While in contact . . . . A couple of other observations. ChuDaw1
includes a seriously dangerous stretch of blind bends on a very busy
road without footpaths, bordered by impregnable Devon banks and a
reputation as one of the most dangerous roads in the County! I condemned
the Way and note another contributor to ChuTei1, which uses the same
stretch, has done likewise. It is lethal and frankly the thought that it
remains a possible Slow Way worries me. It is inappropriate for anyone
(I tried it and felt exceedingly irresponsible and inconsiderate [and a
bl---- fool]). I shudder to think of a family, young children or someone
with a dog attempting it. I've always thought the star system should
allow for zero stars to be awarded as on a dark night even one star is a
vote of confidence! My suggested alternative (ChuDaw2) is a really
great, off-road alternative - and is actually slightly shorter - even
the version I uploaded which in fairness could be shortened still
further by using road stretches for the purity of "directness" BUT at
the expense of some outstanding bridle ways and paths even by Devon
I expect all 4 Daw ways to be snailed this year. This target is closer
than appears from just looking at current validations but ChuDaw is
proving a bit more of an issue because of its length and climbs.
However, we have a tradition of 19th century naval press-ganging in
South Devon , , , , , , . . . I also plan to re-visit each of my
descriptions and reviews following the full restoration of the seawall
which I shall upload using the new edit feature.
Thank you, Cristie, for your earlier correspondence and encouragement
and I hope you can see your way to perhaps resolving the DawTop problem.
Please pass my thanks to Dan also - I was delighted he walked and
clearly enjoyed my TeiDaw2 alternative.
With very best wishes

Easilf 3 is a fairly new route in East London, a few months old. Added because Easilf 2 (one of the originals) had a flaw. It has one positive review.
It does show on the progress map but only just. It doesn't show as a positive review or a negative review. It doesn't show as to be pioneered. It doesn't show as the zero option for verified or positive or anything else either (but what route does!).
I realised after quite a bit of faffing around that it does show under All routes.
Oddly Easilf 2 (which it replaces) shows as both a negative review and as to be pioneered.
Easilf 3 is probably the only one that's likely to get "positively reviewed" but it is fine on the main site and the area has plenty of other slow ways so it won't appear to be a huge hole in the network. It's just a new one for me.
I'm not sure if I'm remembering this right, but is the progress map is being phased out? If that's right then ignore this, if not then please treat it as the lowest priority or none at all. I've stopped worrying about other strange things on there but if this is new to me then perhaps it's new to you too?

Hi Cristie and co.
Here is my feedback. Only on places I’ve looked at before, but if you don’t
get feedback on some points I’ll take a look if it would help.
Hartley (Sevenoaks) is now renamed Longfield - thank you!
If any reviews or routes need to be readded let me know, or maybe they can
just be renamed.
Adding Beckenham Junction station is a better solution than I suggested.
But ElmBec is missing I think.
I’ve presumptuously gone ahead and made ElmBec, CatBec, CryBec and BroBec
because I’d looked at the area a week or two ago, to create a new CatBro
and was prepping to walk a couple. So it was very little effort. Let me
know if you want them. Glad I hadn’t got round to testing them yet, good
The position of Bec(kenham) is good. Does the fine detail matter? If so
perhaps avoid inside the ticket office and go for something just outside
the station like ///number.stable.pies or maybe ///books.foods.frames which
is a bench in a small park about 100m away.
Swanscombe replaced by Greenhithe. Also good news. All 4 route lines are
there too. I volunteer for writing NorGre and/or DarGre, as they’ll
basically be a rehash of SwaDar (darswa?) which I’ve already written and
then walked a route for, combined with NorSwa - recently reviewed that
too. And back when I wrote HarNor and particularly HarSwa (swahar?) I
looked at the N/S connections so it’d make sense to volunteer for that too.
But position of Greenhithe end point could be better maybe
///cares.rice.agenda - just outside station under shelter of the wide
eaves. As for considering a town centre alternative, I don’t know if there
even is a concentrated town centre in Greenhithe, but the road named High
Street isn’t it. It’s the old part of Greenhithe, some beautiful buildings,
but most are residential now, although it does have multiple pubs which did
look nice. The station seems more logical, with all its bus connections.
Stapleford Tawney replaced by S Abbotts. Thank you again!
End point near to the bus stop, near 2 landmarks - school and church,
roughly halfway between the 2 pubs. What’s not to like? 6 / 6 routes looks
The bloke who posted on the forum will probably volunteer but I’ll have a
go at some if you need me to.
The sinuous estuary problem. Already fixed. St Clears to Kidwelly was
equivalent to St Clears to Camarthen to Kidwelly, but it’s not on the
website anymore except for the map lines.
The even more sinuous estuary problem. Many long branches, only one bridge.
If you are able to, can you delete NeyNar, MilPem(broke) and
Pem(brokeDock)Nar please, all 3 are superfluous. Would be simpler and
concentrate reviewer effort.
It does leave Pem(brokeDock) as a Settlement node with only 2 Slow Ways,
which spoils the triangle system. I hope it doesn’t matter.
And seeing as I’m emailing you already….
I noticed another Capitalisation in URL oddity. Same as /SlowWay/ working
but /slowway/ not. But for settlement and route.
And is it just me having a problem with the index on the Progress Map? It’s
been going on a while so I assumed you’d already know, but this is what’s
happening for me.
On Android (Chrome) it is already open when you start, and just continues
on and on hanging with spinning circle, so you can’t use it, the rest of
the map is fine. There are fewer layers available, assume that is
deliberate, I’d prefer that the pioneer and negative review options were
still there, but fair enough. Not figured out how to close the index yet
and it blocks the screen - that doesn’t seem right.
On laptop (Windows, Chrome and Edge) it’s much the same, but I can minimise
the index, and all the layer options are still there which is good.
In practice the index not being available doesn’t make much difference to
me as I already know what those I use mean and could deduce others. Parish
boundaries though, really?!
I really like that Settlement dots now appear when the map first loads.
Small change but big improvement.

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
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
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

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

This is a follow-up to your previous request #751 "Problem with a Route: Carki..."
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.

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.
