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 walked this route from Battersea to Brixton. Some of the reveiwers were a bit harsh, in my opinion! It's a perfectly good route - takes in some greenery where possible, and otherwise follows perfectly safe and pleasant residential streets along the way. You won't catch me raving about it, but it's a perfectly acceptable Slow Ways route!.

I started on this route down to Wandsworth Road rail station and then there was a gentle climb and then along urban streets to Clapham Station. I crossed over the HIgh Street onto Ferndale road and down to Brixton. Accessible by public transport and a much nicer walk than the busy roads around Battersea. Largely accessible.

After leaving the hustle and bustle of Brixton the routes takes you down a lovely residential street towards Clapham. Keep an eye if for the Lionel Stanhope station murals.
Once Clapham High street is negotiated it’s back onto quieter side streets.
Heathbrook park adds some welcome Greenspace. I resisted visiting one of the tap rooms in the adjacent viaducts.
The remaining route twists and winds it’s way under bridges and archways through to Battersea.

An interest in architecture might make this route a bit more attractive but even in quiet streets, parked cars accompany you as you pound the pavements. Apart from a small green space, Heathbrook Park, you are walking along the pavements of very busy roads. On a positive note, there is no shortage of coffee shops along the way.

This route starts along a main road, and apart from a short stretch across a small park the first third passes through mixed residential/ industrial areas which are not very attractive. After crossing the railway bridge, it becomes more pleasant, past large 3-4 storey Victorian terraced houses (stay on the residential road rather than taking the one closer to the railway line, which runs parallel). Towards Brixton the houses along the residential streets become plainer, but it remains easy walking on pavements all the way. There is no obvious better route, but I'd only use this one if I was determined to avoid public transport.

A very road heavy route with one very small park which improves it slightly. Most of the roads are quieter residential ones but you do have to cross a few main roads and walk down some as well.
