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.

  1. Complete the survey training.

There is a path alongside the A40 from the Underpass out of Beaconsfield to the Footpath past Potkiln lane. Use that and the rest of the route is usable. The section through Wilton Park is not open.

This note amplifies my earlier review sent a few days ago.
In that first review I stated that a "path" (from the end of Potkiln Lane heading WNW) is blocked, barred ,.....
I was amazed today when I looked at Google Maps to see that it states that there is a path there, which it names as Minerva Way.
This path did exist about thirty years ago but was blocked barred, etc... when the MOD left the Wilton Park army camp through which Minerva Way went.
My conclusion is that Slow Ways cannot rely on Google Maps as a reliable source of information.

I tried BEAGER1 as an experiment in using Slow Ways. I'm very sorry to say that the walk as described is emphatically blocked.
Walking westward , about a mile from Old Beaconsfield, one leaves footpath CSP/34 to walk along the A40 for about 100 yards. BEAGER1 then suggests a right turn in a northwesterly direction at the junction with Potkiln lane.
It is not possible to get on the "path" recommended. Access to it is heavily barred with Notices that say "Private No Access, Trespassers will be prosecuted,.... "
I'd be happy to show the creator of Beager1 ; just give me a call 01494 673106 Tom Aspinall.
