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.

This is a mostly urban route with some foootpaths.
Its pretty direct and goes past Banstead station.
I walked Ewell to Banstead and had no problems as far as Banstead station, where there is a blind road crossing. Tbh from direction of Ewell this may not be obvious, there is a view of traffic coming round the corners; but for anyone coming from Banstead it would be very unsafe - you can’t see the cars and they can’t see you. I’m flagging the route as unsafe for this reason.

I didn’t mind the dual carriageway crossing further on: there were big gaps in the traffic and it also gave an unexpected view of the London skyline in the distance.
Overall the approach to Banstead along a B road was a bit of a slog. The meeting point is a good one in the town centre with plenty of refreshment options including all day breakfast at the Banstead cafe.

I haven’t yet tried Eweban two, which is safer at the station, but includes walking on a path alongside the dual carriageway towards Banstead.

However, I think there may be a missed opportunity in the middle section to route through Priest Hill wildlife reserve, which would cut out some road walking. I will have a look at making a new version of this route including Priest Hill, and a safe but quieter/less main-roady approach to Banstead.

A really lovely route to Banstead from Ewell which is a nice alternative to the London Loop.
Footpaths mixed in with fairly quiet residential areas.
Couple of big roads to cross over.

Mainly paved route except from railway bridge to Banstead Road.
Two very busy roads to cross but traffic light junctions nearby. Railway Station at Banstead en route.
