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.

23 Sep 2022 Autumn

I walked this route from Madeley to Crewe. Overall, the route is ok, but I can't quite recommend it for a number of accuracy and access issues that make it just not fully workable for anyone but the bravest and most willing of countryside walkers.

Leaving Madeley, the bit around the Sewage Treatment Works was quite overgrown in parts but generally passable.

The hardest part came next, just after the route crosses to the west side of the tracks. It goes through a set of farm buildings, but I couldn't for the life of me find the way through the farm from the Madeley side. There is definitely a footpath, but I just couldn't locate it!

After that, there's a good stretch of fields where the footpath is... let's say... not well cared for. It was there, but there was also a good amount of just marching through fields in generally the right direction.

Other parts were quite nice and pleasant, like the next stretch around Betley Mere.

The route as drawn to leave the A road and go through the lawn in front of the housing development at Gorstyhill Golf Club isn't totally accurate. There are footpaths here, but as drawn it's not right.

Crossing the A500, you have to follow Mill Lane to the east and then west, there's no footpath that goes stragiht across the bypass as it's drawn.

Finally, the footpath stretch bewteen Ryman the Stationer and the Crewe to Derby Line, just after the final rail crossing, was pretty overgrown.

I encountered several fields with cows, too.

Overall, this route had some nice bits and some highlights, but it was also a very challenging one, with lots of obstacles. Some are just part of walking in the countryside, like poorly maintained footpaths, while others are due to the route not being plotted totally accurately.

This could be an acceptable route with some tweaks, but I can't quite recommend it as is.
