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.

Help people know more about this route by volunteering to submit a survey.

Overall nice walk along a mixture of main roads, residential quiet roads, country lanes, couple of woods and an abandoned (or at least both times I have walked through it, quiet) quarry. Starting from Chislehurst, walk past a few shops/cafes, along St Pauls Cray Road - too early in the walk to visit the The Bulls Head? It's there if you fancy a quick beer to get you on your way. Take the path to just enter Park Wood, following through to cross St Pauls Wood Hill, down into Hoblingbell Wood and the recreational ground. The walk takes along some residential roads at this point, with various shops around Cotmendene Crescent, you also walk past a McDonalds at the bottom of Broomwood Road. Over the busy Sevenoaks Way, with two pelican type pedestrian crossings. Following the route to the top of Chalk Pit Avenue and the entrance to Pauls Cray Hill Park. There is a size restricted entrance here that some may find difficult to navigate, matched by similar restrictions on exit to Chapmans Lane. This lane borders a number of fields and can become uneven and rutted in places. The exit to Hockenden Lane has a couple of stile type structures to carefully clamber over. The path to the quiet/unused quarry has an out of date public notice, informing that there is no route through to the A20 - note the out of date part! After about half a mile on this path, it takes a sharp left, following a fence line, the path is partially blocked by large stones/boulders, but are as easy to climb through or over as much as any stile. There is another set of stones/boulders just as you reach the bridge going under the A20, again easily by passed on foot. The path then enters Swanley with easy route to the station.
