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.

Another issue, around Wood Street village, it appears to go along the train line for a bit..... fixable, the path loops south of the train line.

Unfortunately who a lot of this route crosses military land which is closed off during exercise. A short section of the route crosses a firing range which is permanently closed off and not accessible to non military personnel at any time. Therefore, the route doesn't really work. Would be a lovely route if not for that!.

The proposed route seems to run straight through the army’s major training ground and shooting ranges.

The route goes across military land at Ash Vale. Check the MOD website for firing times. If the flags are up, you can walk along the edge of the military land just outside the Fence from east of the Basingstoke canal at Ash Vale then north east near Wyke common until you pick up the slow way again.

    Whilst this route *is* decent, I don't think it should be the main route for the reasons already given.

    Having it as an alternate would be fine - if there were a warning and a link to MOD site.

    The ranges are not a problem *if the military are not firing*... so it needs an alternate. There is a path hugging the fence of the ranges all the way from Ash Vale to where the route comes out on Pirbright road.
