We are working to build-up a picture of what routes look like. To do that we are asking volunteers to survey routes so that we can communicate features, obstacles and challenges that may make a route desirable or not.

Slow Ways surveyors are asked to complete some basic online training, but they are not vetted. If you are dependent on the survey information being correct in order to complete a route, we recommend that you think critically about the information provided. You may also wish to wait until more than one survey has been completed.

Help people know more about this route by volunteering to submit a survey.

Started this walk as it is identical, and identically inaccessible as Alrswa two. When I reached a point where I had to turn back from the other Slow Way I attempted to join this route at the dairy farm at Stanton House. My very presence seemed to get the attention of the nearby herd and they followed me as I walked on the other side of the fence. This in turn attracted a herd from a field on the far side of the farm. When I reached where I join Alrswa one, my way ahead was blocked by 200+ cows who had all converged on the central part of the farm. At this stage I decided to cut my losses and walked away. I ended up getting to Alrewas, but via Burton which is only slightly further than this route. Inaccessible and dangerous. Not recommended.
