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 was a reasonably challenging walk so not to be ventured into lightly (not helped by the weather, admittedly). It's a little tricky to find the starting point and once you get into the wooded area (fairly early on), there's no clear path and you're literally fighting the undergrowth to get through (I gave up and climbed over a fence into a field to escape and get back on track). Much of the walk is through farmers' fields (signposted footpaths) but you can't just walk through the field because it's boggy or pre-planted so you have to skirt around the edges which adds a lot more distance. Also be aware that there's a fair amount of gradient. My final point is the last part of the walk which is a mixture of road/verge walking on a reasonably busy road. Always good to be out in the great outdoors but I'd definitely felt I'd done a proper day's walking.
