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 this from south to north. It is a shortish, straightforward, easy to follow, safe route. It is a mixture of urban pavements, canal paths, hard surface cycle/pedestrian path and countryside pathway. They're not likely to be needed on such a short walk but nevertheless there are facilities for eating and drinking along the route and opportunities to pick up public transport if needed.
I think the other two reviewers have pretty comprehensively filled in pretty well any other necessary detail.

I walked Brownhills to Burntwood along a route plotted by a Slow Way volunteer. That volunteer was me so it was good to see how it worked out. An urban walk half off road half roadside footways. Direct with safe road crossings and a loo block half way.

From the meeting point it's off road immediately. While on the ground the cycle route is provided along the unused footpath the map shows it through the park which I suggest is a better route. It's a bonded surface to the light controlled crossing of the A5 then estate roads.

A duck and dive to cross the canal and M5 Toll then a path with tree screening from the road before a bridge over the road to meet Pool Road. The untested modern loo block is at the start of High Street, a long straight road that takes the route to Burntwood.

Short but sweet. Direct, accessible, easy to walk, it takes you up Burntwood High Street so there are shops, eateries and a couple of pubs. The route takes you up the side of Holland Park and then over a pedestrian crossing through a residential area as far as the Anglesey Branch of the Wyrley and Essington Canal. Having followed it for a short spell the path diverts from the towpath into countryside east of Chasewater (I saw some deer here). A footbridge takes you over the M6 Toll and into the south of Burntwood where the road becomes the High Street. There are public toilets at the foot of the road (they were shut when I walked there). As I mentioned, the High Street is well off for facilities and this takes you all the way up to the Burntwood meeting point. I wonder if there is another Slow Way which has a statue of a miner at either end? (apart from "Brobur One" of course).
