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.

Muddy, fairly easy to follow the route. There was the odd part around some farms where the signage and direction becomes unclear. A mix of walking through grass and wheat fields, road walking on a slightly dangerous road with no footpath, and clear and easy to follow tracks. You need good walking boots and a good map for this route.

Good route

Lots of nettles and not a clear footpath on your way into Congleton

Flat route.
