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.

This route mainly tracks via roads Epsom side, and backyard alley ways through Nork. The pathways are narrow in places and some are laid to gravel, rather than paved, so not always suitable for wheelchair users or pushchairs.
There is an incline at College Road Epsom, which continues for about 500m. It may be tiring for some but taken at a slow pace it should be manageable for most.
Facilities: There are trains/buses/taxis at the Epsom and Banstead end of this walk, with both centres providing shops, cafes, pubs. There are some facilities midway at Drift Bridge, such as convenience stores and a café, which potentially may have a toilet.

There are a couple of large road crossings at Drift Bridge and Brighton Road, both are serviced by pedestrian lights, so it's safe and easy to cross
Some of the alleyways in this route are quite long and could make a lone walker feel a bit uneasy as they are hemmed in and secluded.

Walked this route at dusk from Banstead Village to Epsom. The Banstead end of the route is mainly footpaths cutting through quiet residential areas. Not a great amount of lighting but ok for the the first hour after sunset. Rest of the route was well lit and paths were satisfactory. Safe to walk at night but worth bringing a torch.

This is a direct walking only route from Epsom to Banstead using pavements besides roads and public footpaths.
Most of the footpaths are unsuitable for cycles or scooters.
Most of the pavements and footpaths are paved or gravelled but some are narrow in places. Not all would be suitable for wheelchair access.
There is an overall steady ascent walking from Epsom to Banstead, but the climb is never onerous. There are some long views at the highest point but largely the footpath route is within high fencing between housing. Road crossings are all easy and main roads crossings are facilitated by bollarded islands and or traffic lights.
At Epsom there is a train station with routes north to Victoria, Waterloo and London Bridge and south to Guildford, Dorking and Horsham.
At Banstead the station is approximately 1km from the town centre with trains to Victoria and London Bridge.
Buses are available at both ends of the route and at Drift Bridge (half way between the two towns).
There are no toilet facilities between the two centres.
I identified two small route improvements.
Epsom at Church Road College Road transition - can take route through churchyard.
At Banstead use footpath parallel to high street to church. Although this extends route up Banstead high street.
