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.

DaniellaBeth — 18 Jul 2021

This route has lovely scenery and was easy to follow for most of the way, especially as a large section of it is along St Swithun's Way, which is clearly marked for the most part. The only trouble I had was with the various lanes I was supposed to be walking once I'd arrived in Farnham - these perhaps need to be reviewed (or maybe I'm just terrible at map-reading!).

Phil Smith — 07 May 2021

I live locally and I took this route on Friday 7th May 2021.
It was a nice sunny day and the ground was dry.
From the Slowways criteria:
1) The route is fairly safe. There are a few sections on unpaved lanes.
2) The route respects local codes and laws.
3) It is accessible in that it is not a strenuous walk. There are stiles, gates and steps along the way.
4) The route is reasonably direct (and far enough away from the A31!).
5) It is mostly off road but there are a couple of short stretches of road without pavement.
6) There are no resting places along the way.
7) There are busses and trains at Farnham and Bentley.
8) The route is fairly clear but there are a couple of junctions where I would have taken the wrong direction without GPS.
9) The walk is enjoyable and varied, passing through woods, fields and farm land.
10) The paths are all well established. Part of the route is on Saint Swithuns Way which runs from Farnham to Winchester.
