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.

This is a great walk, but not particularly plotted well. I walked this from Berkhamstead to Amersham on a mostly overcast Saturday afternoon, with little recent rain.

You start with urban walking through Berkhamstead and up several hills. Crossing the A41 is not great, but once past it, the views become great. There is a well maintained path at the edge of a field and woods, and some open farmland. You need to pass through a view fields with horses in it, and I got a little confused at some point as I hadn't spotted the sign to the public footpath on the north side of a row of trees. You go then straight through a field with crops. At the time I walked it it wasn't very tall yet though. After a view more fields you need to cross the slightly scary B4505, with a little bit of verge walking. This was my least favourite part of the route, but luckily not very long. You then go through Cowcroft wood, which was a little muddy, and up yet another hill. The route then descents and crosses the river Chess which had a lovely waterfall. You then pass a lovely cemetery and go through some more woods to end up with a little road walking in Amersham.

Route poorly plotted south of Berkhamsted as it crosses A41. The straight line shown deviates significantly from the actual road.

I went from Berkhamsted and really enjoyed walking this route. There were a couple of roads which would have been easier to cross going the other way as they were on bends, and one path which was accessed through a very narrow, steep and muddy gap in the hedge, which made it quite hard to spot! Overall, however, it was a lovely varied walk through fields, lanes and bluebell woods and generally easy to follow and walk.
