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 walked this route in reverse, from Sleaford to Grantham, and would have to say I wasn't a fan. There is a significant amount of road-walking on this route, some of which did not feel overly safe.

Initially the route left Sleaford heading south across fields and footpaths. Mostly these were well-marked but three times paths were unmarked and I diverted around a field boundary once. There were 12 styles on this section. Crossing the A15 was easy enough.

From Swarby to Culverthorpe was a relatively quiet road (6 cars passed) followed by a walk around Culverthorpe lakes and a useful picnic bench before rejoining the road. The walk from Culverthorpe to Welby was a long road section with over 30 cars passing. The verge was wide however and easy to step back. In Welby the Crown and Anchor pub was a good stop point. The road south of Welby was much quieter, before the route followed a narrow green lane across to the High Dyke. I saw no public right of way signs on the lane but it was clearly well-used.

The short section of the road from the High Dyke to Harrowby felt the most dangerous - 17 cars passed in this section, at seemingly higher speeds than previously, and there were stretches with no easy verge to step back onto.
A final quiet road section followed by nice footpaths on the high ground above Grantham was a nice relief. The route entered Grantham through the edge of the cemetery and through the town to the railway station.

Overall the route was walkable and easy to follow, but long road sections would put me off walking it again.
