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.

A nice short route using a combination of footpaths, parks and residential roads. Some steps and muddy terrain make it foot-only unfortunately.

Walked in reverse, the route from Newton-le-Willows takes us over a bridge, then down a wet and muddy footpath through woods along Newton Brook. Crossing a footbridge and up some steps, the path leads us to another footpath passing a car park. Crossing the road, we enter Mesnes Park. Good wide tarmac paths take us through the park, until we pass a primary school.

From here, it's a number of well-paved residential roads, with some footpaths connecting them in places. Eventually we come to a road where the pavement runs out and the route becomes a well-used earth path (ie muddy), and once through a kissing gate, we're into Lyme & Wood Country Park. A nice wooded path brings us out into the open between a school and a new plantation (look out for the roe deer!), and then we join a good tarmac path that takes us across the fields and towards Haydock.

Leaving the footpath, we join a residential road which then joins the main road, and, once past the supermarket, we're at the end, which is by the library and bus stops.

A decent path. The parks are the best bits, with necessary urban bits, but the greenery more than makes up for these! Transport links at both ends, with shops.
