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.

I walked this one Ripley to Belper. Some cattle in the fields but no bashing through crops. Areas can be very muddy especially around gates and stiles.

Barnes Wallis was born in Ripley and they named a pub after the bouncing bomb inventor but the site is being redeveloped for housing. A Co-op offer a chance to stock up on drink and energy bars or if walking into Ripley take away food is available.

The ground across to Ryknild Street is either muddy or rock hard and rutted with animal hoofs or tractors. The Inn at Street Lane now has alternative use so don't start salivating no services here.

A track offers easy walking before a stretch alongside the busy A38 don't worry you are in the field and we hope the traffic stays the other side of the fence. The view to the east transports us to wilderness if we plug our ears.

Openwoodgate on the fringe of Belper offers an Inn and a Co-op before skirting around the sprawling town through green fields shared with cattle. How long before this walk is along estate roads? The final approach is very pleasant through Belper Parks. Don't ask why it's plural.

Crossing the car park brings us into the Market Place where 28 often has public events and The Angels Micro Pub is worth a visit, limited opening hours.
