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 was from Fakenham Town centre to Wells Next the Sea Quay. Enjoyed doing the route but did encounter some elements that made it harder. Such as having to cross a busy A road, and walking along roads which had lots of traffic, making it hard to move out of their way.
It definitely is not suitable for wheelchair users due to the off road footpath, which is unstable and different levels.
Did note there were footpaths along the route but unsure if they go the same way.

Fakenham - Great Snoring
*Lots of pathways or quiet B roads.
* Did have to cross one busy A road
* A few footpaths but mostly roads

Great Snoring - Walsingham
* Majority of route is through a wooded footpaths, unstable route with last half mile down a steep hill.

Walsingham - Wells

*All road until you reach Wells, although b roads are surprisingly busy and not easy to move out of the way of oncoming traffic
* Once in Wells mostly paths or pedestrianised roads.
