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 was awesome! I thought the departure from High Wycombe was really pleasant, and then the walk through the area around the Higherden Manor was gorgeous! There were just so many stretches of lovely hills, open countryside, enchanting wooded areas, etc. I really thought this was a fantastic route with varied country; it was very enjoyable.

Be warned: there's some good hills on this route, both up and down, and I was in the same field as several cows on at least two occasions.

Overall, I really loved this route!


1) Walk out of High Wycombe passed through residential areas, but quickly got to quiet greenery
2-3) Hughenden park area was gorgeous!
4-5) countryside is gorgeous!
6) Cows on the hillside in the same area as the route
7) Typical woods portion of this route
8) The route is a bit hilly, so be warned!.

We had a very enjoyable walk from Prestwood to High Wycombe, mostly through fields and woodland. Following the path in this direction, there's more downhill than uphill. At this time of year (August) the path on the west side of Hampden Road is a little overgrown, with the nettles, brambles and thistles being quite noticeable for someone wearing shorts (as I was), but apart from that the walk was very straightforward and easy to follow.

It is slightly odd to start at Prestwood rather than Great Missenden, a better train/bus hub. However, the walk is pleasant and pretty easy to follow, with a couple of steepish up and down sections at the start. It brings you back close to Hughenden Manor, where there are a number of alternative routes back to Wycombe. Most of the walking is on paths, which may become muddy, especially in the woods.
