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.

This is a curate's egg of a walk, traveling from RWB to Chippenham, it is a mix of normal UK footpaths, well groomed estates and golf course, attractive sections and views, together with quiet lanes and tracks, and an interesting section around Lyneham airfield with its military hardware on display.
The downsides are the number of diversions having to be taken to avoid lively cows, and footpaths which have been deliberately extinguished by landowners.
These include
a ) ST 97001 77157 : walking through someones garden, the stile into field, all means of access has been removed, preventing walking across fields to ST 95901 76688
b ) ST 99337 77999 to ST 99270 77913 : path has been removed
c ) ST 99191 77763 to ST 98644 77404 : excitable cows
( a ) and ( c ) involved diverting route onto quiet lanes, whilst ( b ) involved much to-in and fro-in trying to find the path in a wilderness, then opting on an alternative route entirely
As a result, I thought it appropriate to upload another route, which takes out these issues.
This alternative shows where the actual route on the ground is, rather than the OS map line.
All issues above have been formally notified to Wilts ROW Department - together with crops over paths, damaged stiles etc [ which I regarded as surmountable ]
All photos indicate the non existing paths.
