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.

  1. Complete the survey training.

Good route which is easy to follow across the fields. Lots of historical sites on route including Old Oswestry and the start of Pontcysyllte UNESCO World Heritage Site around Chirk aqueduct. Many may prefer to follow the canal around Chirk with this adding no extra time but taking in a bit more scenery. Very good transport connections.

I walked this route (both ways) on 30/04/2021.
The route follows identifiable paths so is easy to navigate. There are a few issues for people with reduced mobility:
1. The route crosses the A5 twice. This is a busy, fast road requiring some patience and speedy footwork to cross safely.
2. The paths occasionally have a width reduced to about 600mm
3. There are a number of stiles, gates and kissing gates along the route
4. There is one closed farm gate having concrete blocks on their ends either side of the gate acting as the stile.
5. There is one narrow bridge with steep steps crossing the railway line.
6. Some paths passed through fields with cattle.
