Surveys

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.

Walked this route in November. The paths as you leave the canal on the outskirts of Aylesbury are not in any way maintained - there is a field often used by cows and they churn the ground up so the path can easily become flooded and impassable. It’s an ok path for those desperate to get away from the canal for a few miles but if you want a good route to use all year round then this isn’t it.

If you know the area, this might be considered a slightly boring route at the start and finish with a walk along the canal and a road walk.
If you do not know the area then there is quite a variety.
From Aylesbury a fairly straightforward exit from the town to reach the canal followed by the canal towpath. Be careful not to miss the bridge to change from South to North bank.
After this many of the paths, up to Long Marston, are quite vague and underused becoming overgrown with nettles and brambles making progress fairly slow. Maybe worth taking secateurs to prune back some of the growth.
If open there is a good pub at Long Marston but check if food available.
Interesting section from there to reach canal but may be muddy in places.
Route now on canal towpath again. Need to watch out for bridge near Manor Farm (Marsworth) where you change banks.
On reaching road take care as it is busy. Rest of route is by busy roads to arrive at roundabout at Pitstone.
On bus route. Places to eat or drink on road to and in Ivinghoe
There are a number of stiles on the route and 1 step bridge. Several fields had cows in and when I walked with my dog the cows were threatening.
