Description

An alternative route to CanLew1 between Canada Water and Lewisham which avoids most of the busiest main roads between Surrey Quays and Deptford Broadway.

The route uses traffic free routes, and quiet roads alongside Canada Water and Surrey Quays Shopping Centre, around Greenland Dock, along the Surrey Canal Linear Park and through Deptford Park. The section along the A2 is avoided by diverting along Douglas Way (mostly traffic free) and Deptford High Street. The final section is the same as the original route, following the Waterlink Way through Brookmill Park.

At Folkestone Gardens (the middle part of the route) there is a cafe with toilets for public use during opening hours (9 - 5 Mon - Sun).

Surveys

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.

Intrepid Rabbit

I walked this route from Lewisham to Canada Water. After a very unpromising start - busy, major roads and a bus terminus to negotiate, things improved significantly as I walked through quiet back streets and estates, and a series of green spaces, including alongside the Ravensbourne and around Greenland Dock. Plenty of shops and other facilities at either end of the route.
