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.

  1. Complete the survey training.
  2. Submit a survey for this route.

There are three major issues with this route
1 The woods at the start are gated off as private property
2 The footpath breaking off from the Beacon Way by the Old Hall can not be accessed (reported via Ramblers App)
3 Bridle Lane, although direct, has no pavement and there is a less direct but much safer alternative via Barr Beacon.
