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.

Inaccessible! The route in Birmingham follows the route of the River Rea and then River Tame. Neither of these rivers have footpaths in this part of the city and can not be followed (as I discovered when attempting a similar walk about 5 years ago). Would suggest a route via the Grand Union instead but that runs north - south for an east - west route. I shall plot a new accessible, more direct route soon.
