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.

Pleasant walk from Epsom Town Centre to Ashtead alongside the railway with plenty of green sections especially through Ashtead Park. Shops at each end. Possible to continue to Banstead via Epsom Downs from end of Ashtead Park instead of continuing into Ashtead centre. One level crossing of railway that needs great care. It was frosty when I crossed.

Route: This route mainly tracks via Epsom Common and Ashtead Park, which are a pleasure to walk through. There is minimal walking by roads. The off-road tracks are often non-pathed and laid to gravel, which may make some parts of the walk more challenging for wheelchair users or people with pushchairs. These paths would certainly get muddy after rain. There is a section on the walk after Ashtead Park where there is a need to walk along a road with no pavement, however the road is very quiet and the area is picturesque.
Facilities: There are trains/buses/taxis, as well as toilets, shops, cafes and pubs at the Epsom and Ashtead. There were no facilities along this route.
Safety: There is one A-road crossing (A24) where there are bollards to improve safety.
Most of the route is off road on quiet pathways which could make a lone walker feel a bit uneasy, but it’s never that far from a road and dog walkers were often passing by.

I did this Slow Way as part of a big Waylist that started in Zone 2 of London, and I thought this was one of the nicest sections I tried within the M25. It goes through quite a bit of green and nature spaces, so though the path is a little bit muddy, it's quiet, peaceful, and relatively calm. It doesn't seem to go all the way to the station, but because of that, it seems that you could go through Ashtead Park without much of a detour. The whole route seems safe, but you have to go through gates to access Ashtead Park. I would do this walk again!.

Walkers on the path cross a busy railway track. There are gates. Short part of route bridleway, so could be muddy.

Toilets in car park near The Street in Ashtead and in Epsom Library, Epsom Square or in the Epsom shopping mall.
