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.

This was an absolutely delightful route. I walked this from Amersham to Beaconsfield.

Straight out of Amersham you cross into some woods, and when you come out of it you get greeted with a lovely view of Old Amersham and it's church spire. Then there is a gentle climb through green fields, and along or through a field with crops (See my note at the end). There is a tiny stretch of road walking, followed by a neat straight line walk up a hill through fields with a windmill over the trees. Then there is a short stretch road walking on Magpie Lane, which can be avoided by just crossing the road and going straight. Many more nice views follow. There is a few hundred metres through a dark looking tree tunnel (the public footpath markers were a little confusing here), followed by some stretches through urban public footpaths (with a fence on each side). The last few hundred yards are through the outskirts of Beaconsfield with mahoosive houses.

There is one change that I would make to this route, but it's not enough of a change to upload a new route for. At some point just after leaving Amersham there is a switch back in the route to go up the hill, through the middle of a field, and then after having walked a little at the top, it directs you back down off the hill to the path that you were just one. A bit pointless, and I would just go straight instead.

I enjoyed this route a lot. It's easy to navigate, though there are a few slightly confusing switchbacks. Beautiful scenery once one leaves old Amersham behind. It's also very varied with a nice mix of town, woodland and farmland over the short 5-6 miles. Despite following the A355, this route stays a sufficient distance away from it that you hardly notice it's there. It's safe and makes good use of a road bridge over the A413. Walked this in February so it was boggy, especially in the woodland. I'm not entirely sure why the route bothers going down Magpie lane and then around to Ongar farm after Bowers farm as there's a path straight through. A fence, presumably blown down in the recent storms, has also, unfortunately, obstructed some of the final straight between the woodland and the town. All in all though a very enjoyable route.
