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've rated this a two for four main reasons:
- there is one section about a mile or so long which is very difficult and uncomfortable to walk because of unmarked stiles, stiles obscured by thick growth and sections of footpath heavily overgrown.
- 5 of the fields had large herds of cows in, one group was very lively, the other had a bull amongst them which we did not see until leaving the field.
- the busy, 3 lane A361 road had to be crossed, using embankments and the signs and stiles were heavily obscured by hedge growth as they had been poorly maintained.
- although there are some excellent sections for wheels the countryside sections would be impassable because of the rough surface and stiles.
Most of the obstacles were between W3W: "modes.charmingly.acquaint" and "fronted.dreamers.grunt ".
I intend checking out an alternative route further west.
