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.

I have walked this route twice, it works really smoothly, by the second time of walking we didn't need to refer to the map. The route is not necessarily accessible for all, but is largely flat and comfortable for most. Many pubs on route. Very pretty. Love the Elham Valley Way.

Pleasant walk, lots to see along the way such as Bourne Park House and Charlton Park. Quite hilly in places, and many kissing gates, some kept in better condition than others. One near Bourne Park has tangled exposed roots, which may be challenging to those in wheelchairs. Some recent storm damage in wooded areas.

A very nice walking route. Much of it traffic free. Much of it shared with The North Downs Way, National Trail.
