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.

Firstly, myself and our group opted to walk this route in the other direction, from Acle to Wroxham - the train times presented better options if you do this in the morning and to travel back in the afternoon. The route is 'ok', you can't include much in the way of public bridleways because they are limited but it does utilise them where possible. It is about 25% on trails the rest is on the road, most of the roads are quieter during main business hours but some of the back roads did attract more traffic than expected.

We would walk this in the other direction, having decent weather is better as it could become very muddy in places potentially after heavy rain, about 90% of the route is safe except for a main road out of Wroxham which is busy and wouldn't advise it with younger children. The route is accurate but should probably use the footpath through a housing estate near Wroxham to avoid walking on a blind busy bend in the road (highlighted in the pictures).

Its not suitable for wheelchairs or pushchairs, it is worth doing the walk as it covers parts of the Norfolk Broads, offers good pubs to stop at, plenty of toilet options and bins (both rubbish and dog ones). Its well sign posted with the public footpath signs.
