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.

This is really achievable route and one which I have recorded a video on. There is, however a very slight issue with the beginning of the route after crossing the railway bridge the route heads around the edge of a field and into woodland. In the Woodland the path seems to terminate at a collapsed bridge. The reason this bridge is collapsed is because this path terminates at that bridge.

The correct route is to follow the path along the railway fencing then cross the field just to the north of the path that terminates. I have added a picture for illustration purposes but this path that terminates id discussed in the comments section of this video:

"Walking 10 miles | Unedited Headcorn to Tenterden (HEATEN) "Slow Ways" route" - https://youtu.be/80eFhLscDNk

Aside from that the route is a really accessible one with very little elevation. There are some road sections but these are short and pedestrians have a place to walk on the verge during these sections.
