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.

Straightforward route, mostly along the path of the Coventry Way. At points from the canal you can see right across to the three spires of Coventry and beyond.
The canal tow path is narrow, so not great if you like to walk next to your walking buddy, but otherwise is passable. There are some towpath repairs currently taking place, but it's passable.
Refreshments at both ends, and a nice pub in Ansty.

A good direct, safe and well maintained route. It mainly follows the Coventry Way and is generally well marked. I started from Brinklow. The route leaves the village and passes through grassy fields. After a short walk along Smeaton Lane then Colehurst Lane, you join the Oxford Canal. The section along the canal is visually pleasant although the sound of the M6, which you pass a long way under and then the M69 is always around. The route leaves the canal to pass through village of Ansty, where there is an "Eatery". You then rejoin the canal, on the non-towpath side only to leave it again to follow a track parallel to the M69. Turning a sharp left, the next section plunges into farmland and was some of the best sections of my walk. I got the impression that there might be some great views during this part, but alas it was too misty on the day. Barnacle is a quiet village, I don't recall passing any shops there. The section by Park Farm was a little confusing, but only because the route is marked differently on the map to how it is on the trail. It's possible that the route once went down the drive of the farm. But instead you are diverted through a field which runs alongside. Not a major hardship. There's a walk beside lakes, some woodland and then finally the route into Bedworth via Miners Welfare Park, which has a cafe (alongside a new bike track and a massive frisbee golf course). A direct, safe and enjoyable walk. Full marks.

A very pleasant route but not suitable for wheelchairs/pushchairs as numerous styles. Follows named paths but some junctions lacked signage so detailed route was required. Varied across fields, canal tow path very little on road. I would walk it again.
