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.

Not terrible but I feel falls foul of 1, 4 and 10 of the methodology for Slow Ways. The only section I did not feel safe was the section along Abnalls Lane, west of Lichfield. The lane is narrow, has steep sides and is used a lot as a rat run between Lichfield and Burntwood. To be fair, it is a section of the Heart of England Way, but a section I would always try and avoid and would not recommend anyone to walk. The route is certainly not direct and travels a long way north east to pick up the Heart of England Way when there are safer more direct footpaths linking the two settlements. There is a lot of on road walking on this route and I think the Heart of England Way has proved a distraction. There is a lot of pleasant country walking on this route but it is not direct or safe enough for me to recommend it.
