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 route should be quite a good one, considering how few direct options are available, but it is let down by careless plotting and needs redrawing - in particular it crosses the South Forty Foot Drain between bridges, and there is no direct route from the path parallel to the A17 bypass outside Heckington to the top of the bridge on Kyme Road. I have created HECBOS 2, which is 90% the same route, but drawn more carefully, and reflecting my experience of walking it from Boston to Heckington. For a more detailed review see the new route.
