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.

I enjoyed walking this route a lot; the scenery was lovely on the whole and it went through a couple of very pretty villages. The biggest downside is the length of time you have to walk along a road when going through The Sands. Also, there are quite a lot of wooded portions, which may make some lone walkers feel a bit unsafe.

This is a nice part of the world. There are two potential improvements:
(a) Godalming to Eashing: use route via River Wey footpath from Borough Road, end of Peperharow Road, footpath via Milton Wood to Hurtmore Bottom, then bridleway to Eashing. The Milton Wood section is muddy when wet, but then so is the Fox Way section at Eashing Farm. This route avoids the busy road section by Eashing Farm.
(b) Charleshill to Compton: the route suggested is rather boring through pine forest and involves a long on-road section at The Sands. Instead, cross the B3001 by The Donkey at Charleshill, take the byway then very minor road to Tilford (historic bridge and village green, good pub), then the Greensand Way (right before the bridge) via Waverley Abbey (NT site just off route) to meet up with the main route at the South Downs Way near Compton. Scenically much more interesting, although slightly longer.
I would propose an alternative route, but don't have the technology to create a GPX file.

    Totally agree with 486peter and came on to make similar recommendations.
    Existing route to Eashing follows a dangerous section of road that is not safe.
    The Charleshill section has a couple of different options but none are that great and involve road. I'll try ti get out this weekend and create gpx's for the best options
