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.

01 Dec 2022 Autumn

This route from Coleshill into central Coventry went via N.Warwickshire villages and over the M6 motorway. A reasonable portion of the route was on lanes, which although not busy on a Sunday in November (or least, only with cyclists), could be potentially a little dangerous as the grass verges were not always suitable to walk on.

The route itself could be more closely mapped onto the public footpaths, so you may need to bear this in mind when using the .gpx file. The start point is a lovely church in Coleshill, but the route takes you onto the High Street when actually you could follow the public footpath waymarkers and cut the corner off. The last part of the route follows one of the major roads into Coventry city centre and is not the most interesting and quite busy, but alternative routes would make this Slow Way quite a bit longer than it already is.

Refreshment options en route are a little limited with only a couple of pubs in the middle section (miles 1-8 approx.) so make sure you have drinks and snacks with you. Some of the working farms that you zig zag through are exceptionally muddy at the moment (Winter 2022).
