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.

I walked this from Borehamwood to Edgware. It starts of with a long slow up the bill, following the route of the LOOP for a tiny bit. I enjoyed it, even though it was a little bit muddy in places, with some fallen trees in the way. It goes partly trough some delightful woods, crosses the M1, from where you can see Wembley station's Arch in the background. You then cross another busy road with steps or ramps, and from there on into Edgware was a little boring along some streets.

Walked Borehamwood to Edgware on a lovely sunny spring day. Going in this direction the route is mostly downhill, and I really enjoyed it. This is a mostly 5 star route, but being a bit dull at the Edgware end means I dropped it down to 4 stars.

First section along the road out of Borehamwood was straightforward until I encountered a large artic parked right up over the pavement (photo) #sigh I did have words ....

Soon I turned off the road into fields - the ground was soft and it was helpful to have a walking pole. There were horses in both fields, docile but maybe a bit inquisitive/bored. (photo)

Next the woods - some mud, one tree across the path meant a slight detour around, (photo) and a flight of steps (photo in the main route description).

There are signs up about an application to change the footpaths in this area, but I don't think it'll make much difference to this route if the change gets approved. (photo)

After the woods the route goes downhill along Edgwarebury Lane all the way to Edgwarebury Park. The lane is quite steep and rough in places, very occasional traffic. It passes a riding stables for disabled people, and there is a bridge over the M1 with good views across London.

Eventually I came to the outskirts of Edgware and the route turned into Edgwarebury Park. I was very pleased to buy a cup of tea at the cafe/kiosk and sit in the sun enjoying a successful walk.

After the park comes the A41 Watford Bypass, crossed by a bridge (steps or a long ramp), with this route option there is only a short walk along the main road before turning into residential streets, and eventually coming to Edgware station.
