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.

The route progressively worsened as it went on. About halfway (between paper mill lock and Hatfield Peverell) the paths narrowed to a foot wide at some bits, going between fields also became overgrown. Around the Wickham bishops area the path worsened, stretches were very overgrown with nettles and Brambles and finally approaching witham the path completely disappeared as the farmer hadn't maintained it. Using GPS I followed the route through the field but eventually ran into a wall of Brambles and had to backtrack and find an alternative route.

A good route, walkable and enjoyable throughout.

A pleasant route - mostly easy to follow. The bit through the housing estate in Witham is a bit tricky but fine if you just remember to head south. Muddy and wet underfoot near the canal as you would expect at this time of year.
