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.

Easy route to follow. A little muddy in parts. Some nice scenery and a good variety of scenery: rivers, farmland, woodland and old buildings.

Starting in Crewe means following a busy main road until reaching Haslington. However the road has a wide pavement until the second big roundabout. The pavement then becomes narrower for a while before turning off down a residential road to lead to the open fields.
Unfortunately, the walk is no longer stile free at Moss Cottage Farm. A new land owner has removed a previously stile free permissive path and re- instated stiles.
Good views over open countryside. On a clear day Mow Cop can be seen in the distance.
Access to the canal in Wheelock is down a small set of steps. The path on this side of the canal and the following woods has been significantly improved by the work of volunteers in the Sandbach Woodland and Wildlife group.
There are no buses between Sandbach and Crewe on a Sunday.

A great walk, well away from main roads on the whole and with good rural views. You are soon out of Crewe and walking along the quieter road to Haslington. Once in the village, follow the sign to Crewe golf course, and shortly after that you will be following a route of farm tracks or footpaths through fields. Some of the fields are used for grazing cattle. No stiles, just gates, although there are a few steps down to the canal path (which is very narrow and overgrown, but passable). On the day I walked, there were two footpath diversions, but both were well signed. The busy A534 is safely crossed using a subway.
