Description

This is for fun. The path N-S is shown on the 1870 OS map as Clarendon Grove along the back of houses on Chalton Street. Even in 1870 it passed under a building opposite the impressive looking Polygon in Clarendon Square (now Phoenix Road) The road to the north is still named Polygon Road. A map surveyed in 1914 shows The Polygon, gone so not a casualty of the blitz. Also many houses to the east had gone since 1870 under the Midland Railway Goods Shed, now the site of the British Library and Francis Crick Institute. The other footpath section of this Slow Way was opened in September 2017 it is named after the late Sir Naim Dangoor, his name appears on the list of donors whose generosity is acknowledged by Cancer Research UK

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 Kings Cross to Euston Station. I liked it quite a bit. It’s accurately-plotted and takes advantage of a surprisingly high number of off-road paths. One might feel a bit dodgy for some, but I walked during the day so it was hard to judge how it might feel in low light. The only complaint I might have is that it felt like I was walking in circles - it’s pretty indirect, which was just a bit frustrating. As a walking route, though, perfectly good! (Sorry I can’t rave as eloquently as Dave!).

This might be described as being designed "for fun", but it's actually the best Slow Way of the Euskins. It takes the accessible, step-free route out to the front of the station, connecting with the buses and passing the Doric Arch pub in the process. You cross over into Grafton Place and then turn away into Churchway, a much quieter route than the other two in that respect. At the end of the road there's an alleyway onto Phoenix Road which passes under the building. If avoiding alleyways is your priority then this isn't the Euskin for you but I felt quite safe following it. You're only Phoenix Road briefly before turning to walk towards the British Library. As I stopped to take a photo of the sign for Dangoor Walk, I was wished a good morning by two of the people who passed me. The Wallk itself is open, well used and very friendly. It also takes you through the entrance for St Pancras at what for many people is the "business end". If you're connecting with a Thameslink, or travelling to the East Midlands or Kent this is a much better entrance to be connected with. Emerging from the other side, there is a crossing and the last short section around the side of the station to the meeting point at Kings Cross. What's remarkable about this Slow Way is how it maximises the use of offroad walking and quiet space, in a short section of an incredibly busy part of London, whilst connecting with key transport links. Full marks!.

    Thanks for that glowing review. I might get down to London one day and walk it myself.
