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 from Church end to Hampstead Heath, there were a few facilities including benches to sit and a lovely view of the pond however, there were rough surfaces such as loose gravel, unmade paths and deep muddy sections which you may have to look out for as well as a couple fallen trees and a flight of steps to climb.

I would thoroughly recommend the route to someone with the same requirements.

I really like this route a lot. I walked it from Hampstead Heath to Finchley Road on this day. There's a lot about it to commend.

Of course, the bits through Hampstead Heath are lovely. It's always so lovely in the park.

Bigwood Road and Big Wood itself are extremely lovely, as is Little Wood, its neighbour.

The Stephens House is a surprise bonus on the walk, and the rest of the residential streets leading to Finchley Central station are perfectly good for a Slow Ways route.

Be warned it can be a bit difficult to navigate through Hampstead Heath. The route I've uploaded here follows as accurately as possible what I walked when I followed footpaths through the park. Generally, it's okay if you don't end up on exactly the same footpath, so long as you're heading in the right direction. I tried my best to make the plotting as accurate, though, to help with navigation.

I really highly recommend this route. It's a great one!.
