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 from Wigan to Billinge.

It's all along roads, with great ramps and crossings at the Wigan end. But in rural Merseyside, the ramps vanish and, in places, the pavement is narrow or overgrown.

A pleasant enough and straightforward route, albeit for foot only, but hardly exciting.
