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.

I walked this with my son. Nice route, easy to follow and as described.
Pleased to find a trig point just out of town and fields were a little waterlogged, but passable (we have had a lot of rain recently).
Walking through active farm and livestock fields, take care to keep dogs closely controlled.
Included swing gates and a stile.

This route takes you out of Coventry city centre through Hillfields and along the Coventry canal, through woodlands and crossing over some of the major A roads in Coventry before walking through fields and farms at the back of Coombe Abbey and into Brinklow.

There were two short sections on quite busy roads which do require some care. Refreshments available from shops and pubs on the way out of Coventry and pubs, a cafe and the village store in Brinklow.

A few trips away from the busy city as you get to follow both the canal and the River Sowe for a short while, before heading through Coombe Abbey Park and onto Brinklow.

Ice cream, cafe and toilets available in Coventry and at Coombe Abbey (a short detour off of the route).


01 May 2021 Spring

Easy to follow with no serious obstacles - 1 high stile in early part. Provides a mix of field paths and urban parks. Last 2 miles into Coventry is rather dull with streets full of waste bins. Direct return bus is possible.
