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.

I walked this route from Chiswick to Ealing Broadway, and I thought it was a perfectly fine slow Waze route! There’s a bit of walking through lovely commons, through quiet residential neighborhoods, and only short stretches along busier roads. Overall a great link between these two points, with lots of shops and restaurants on both ends.

I also walked it before sunrise, and the vast majority of the route was very well lit.

Only dinged a star because there’s a long middle stretch along a somewhat large and somewhat industrial road that was just slightly less than pleasant to walk along.

A nice direct route which comes close to being perfect (which is to say it's almost exactly how I would design this route!).

It's an urban mix of shops and cafes, residential, green parks, and some business/trade use still just clinging on in Acton.

There is one not-nice road crossing and that is unsurprisingly the A406 North Circular at Ealing Common. The route line goes straight across the North Circular from Crossland Avenue to the common - you will be exceptionally lucky if you can do this. There is a 'refuge' crossing, a tiny begrudging refuge it is, about 50 - 100 metres south of the route line, and this is the only possibility. Providing the traffic stays slow it is safe, but the common and the people around it deserve better.

The route goes past Acton Town station (District Line) - there is a wonderful Transport Museum here, it's hardly ever open, but on opening days this would be the way to walk there! There are some good refreshment options at Acton Town.

Bollo Lane - this is one of my favourite roads in the area. It follows the line of one of London's lost rivers - the Bollo Brook. The lane retains some of its old industrial existence, but modern luxury flats are encroaching.

The route finishes with a walk through Acton Green Common, and then goes under a railway bridge to Chiswick Common. The path under the bridge is quite narrow and busy - this is the only part of the route I would change - I'd stay north of the railway and cross under at Turnham Green station, where there is an interesting mural display of Chiswick history in maps and pictures, and a wide pavement.

All in all I think this is a really good Slow Ways route - direct and interesting - and I'd walk it again.

Quick, direct route that largely avoids main roads. There's a slightly industrial section in the middle which is not particularly pleasant, but nothing dangerous or difficult to navigate.

Excellent route, mostly through residential areas. Lots of zebra crossings which is nice. Is mostly lit by streetlamps, and passes by useful shops and stations. Route may look windy but is actually quite straight forward in person.
