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.

I live locally and I took this route on Monday 26th April 2021.It was a nice sunny day and the ground was dry. From the Slowways criteria: 1) The safety of the route is dubious. Firstly, the route crosses the A31 dual carriageway. Not a problem when traffic is light but a difficult crossing when it is heavy. The stretch of road on the north side of Shortheath Common, near Oakhanger, has no footpath. The traffic is not heavy but it is fast. I would suggest taking a route further south, through the common itself. I have offered an alternative route (Altbor 2) avoiding these issues but one mile longer. 2) The route respects local codes and laws. 3) It is accessible in that it is not a strenuous walk. there are parts that will be very muddy in wet weather, judging from the areas with deep animal footprints. There are no stiles, just gates. 4) The walk is direct. 5) It is mostly off road or on road with pavement but there is one stretch of road without pavement. 6) There are resting places along the way, seating at the church in East Worldham. Alton and Bordon have places to eat and drink. 7) There are busses at Alton and Bordon. 8) The route is fairly clear but there are a couple of places where you could be led a little astray without GPS. 9) The walk is enjoyable and the scenery pleasant enough. 10) The paths are all well established. The route follows (mostly) the Hangers Way between Alton and East Worldham. Old House Farm in East Worldham had plowed a field, hiding the route path but in my opinion the alternative, actually on the Hangers Way passing Clay's Farm, is preferable.
