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.

Help people know more about this route by volunteering to submit a survey.

A pleasant route though the narrow lane would be better than the footpath to Waterley Bottom. Very steep indeed up Breakheart Hill - best avoided!.

We walked the route from Wotton to Dursley on 17/02/2022. I would make two alterations 1. The steep path descending through woodland north from Bradley Barn (on Photo 2, it is between 182 and 117 ) is a compacted V shaped channel (photo 1) created by water flow and motorbikes. It was difficult in dry weather and would be very slippery if wet.2. On Breakheart Hill, the suggested path goes very steeply straight up from the pub. We decided to take the bridle way directly in front of the pub because it is wider and less steep.See photo 3.

Generally meets criteria. One error: there is no footpath at grid ref 765941 to 764938. Instead we crossed the road at 765941 and used the quiet lanes and paths to 764938.

At 757977 the route leads to an unnecessary descent of Nunnery Lane followed by a steep ascent from Twinberrow Lane. This can be avoided by using the bridlepath and footpaths which pass through 756975, 755972 and on to 758967 where it rejoins the route. (The OS map shows a gap between 755972 and 755971, but there is a clear path on the ground.).
