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.

This review just covers the route from Colsterworth roundabout to Honeypot lane. The A151 bridge appears to be the only safe way to cross the A1 in the area, and has a pavement for pedestrians. However, once passed the truck stop there is requirement to walk on the A151 for 0.5km which can be busy and has a safe harbour only on the northern side. Once in Twyford woods good paths however the southern exit route has been rerouted but is well signposted. This leads onto honeypot lane which was very quiet (zero vehicles on this occasion). If walking towards Colsterworth the entrance to the path is concealed.

    I did flag for safety due to walk on the A151, but didn't register on resubmission.
