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.

The majority of this route is along the Flitch Way which is a cinder surfaced disused railway track popular with dog walkers, cyclists and horse riders and provides a good surface in all weathers. The start in Bishops Stortford takes you through quiet back streets, past the Herts and Essex Hospital to exit the residential area, across the road and on to Haymeads Lane (see photo). This is a cul de sac where it can be difficult to see the footpath which leads onto the golf course as it ends in a parking bay (see photo). After the golf course the footpath leads through fields and under the motorway. At present (December 2022) the footbridge crossing a stream after the underpass is temporarily cordoned off as there are planks missing. (see photo). There is an alternative route marked and which can be seen on the map which doesn't take you too far out of the way. There is a short section on the road with no footpath as you approach the start of the Flitch Way (see photo)
Starting at Bishops Stortford train station and finishing in Dunmow High Street where there are bus services which show on the Travel Essex app. If you wish to make it a longer walk the Flitch Way runs alongside the National Trust property of Hatfield Forest with access at various points.
