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.

Walked 7th May 2022. Route commences as for Bednun 1 through residential roads to a canal bridge. It then diverges following the canal towpath of the Ashby De La Zouche canal. Surface is a mixture of grassed over footpath, narrow footpath and wider areas of earth/stone footpath. Whilst mostly level walking the surface was uneven with tree roots and rutted areas providing minor hazards for a practiced walker. I did not think it suitable for wheelchair/pushchair users. It was quiet on the day with few pedestrians and the occasional passing barge which made for a pleasant walk. At this stage I was rating it overall as 3*.

The canal section then gave way to another quiet road section through the village of Burton Hastings before a foot pathed section through fields. There were several stiles to navigate in varying states of disrepair. The starting point was easily found. The route went through a large rape planted field which became quite challenging the further one went. Whilst an attempt had been made to make the path accessible for much of it the plants overgrew the path. This meant it was impassable for anyone using wheeled transport. The next field was grassed. The footpath took a small detour around electrified fencing separating areas for horses/ponies. The next field was again planted with rape. After the previous experience the footpath was avoided by traversing the perimeter of the field. The following field contained 15 steers who advanced rapidly to 'block the path' . Not being confident with excitable cattle meant another detour was needed before regaining the footpath again which finally ended up on a farm track which in turn led to the outskirts of Hinckley. It was this section of the walk that provided the 1* rating. The vibes given were 'walkers not welcome here'.

The walk into Hinckley was again pleasant with no real accessibility problems.
