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 is a pretty good route, mostly on footpaths. Some of these are quite narrow and overgrown, with barbed wire on one side, but most are better. The route goes through Jordans and touches on Seer Green, and then crosses a golf course.

I walked this from Gerrards Cross to Beaconsfield on a warm sunny spring day, without it having rained significantly in the last two weeks. It starts off following a footpath along the rail way. The original route then moves away and follows Orchehill Avenue, but as another reviews says, it is better to stick following the railway until Bull Lane, because on that southern side there is a pavement. I found many of the footpaths, although green, a little claustrophobic as there was often a high fence or barbed wire fence on both sides of the walk. At parts it was also narrow, and very likely to be muddy in wetter weather. It goes through a little village (Jordans), which is quite pleasant, and from there it goes down a hill and straight up again into Seer Green where there is a little street walking. Crossing the street (Long Bottom Lane) then brings you across a golf course for quite some time, before crossing the rail way and the new "Beaconsfield Eastern Relief Road" to walk through some residential streets, an alleyway, and along a slightly busy Maxwell Road to find some steep steps down to the station. It was a lovely walk, but I would have given it 3½ stars due to the encroachment of so many fences. But there were some great views and many blue bells.

I found this a really nice, beautiful, safe route, and I would recommend it to others.

It is clearly signposted and follows public footpath signs the whole way (apart from in the Ash Bed woods. When entering the woods from the Beaconsfield direction, the path is straight ahead but it doesn't seem to be signposted. It is a well defined path though!).

One tip - I would watch out for the main road when you come into Gerrards Cross, the route takes you left onto Bull lane where there is no pavement and it is quite busy, I found it a bit scary. I would instead turn right along Bull lane where there is a pavement, and then turn onto the path that runs along the trainline from there (that is what I did on my way back and I much preferred it).

There are some thin paths that are probably inaccessible for a wheelchair uses or pushchairs, particularly in winter - it was fairly muddy and leafy in parts. Might be better in summer though!

Overall it's a really nice route.

I walked from the Ash Beds to Beaconsfield train station. Generally an easy and pleasant route. Slight confusion as the route goes straight across the road at Welder's Lane, but it looked from the map as if it might follow the road briefly. A number of stiles, some steep-ish hills and narrow alleys, so may not be suitable for those with trouble walking or pushing prams etc.
