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.

Enjoyable, but can be hard work - it's quite hilly in the woods and the paths are heavily used, so occasionally you're walking in a few inches of sucking mud (photo 1, the track to Little Acre Farm). Stout footwear and minimal walking fitness required.

I would recommend one alteration near Godley Brook: the current GPX recommends you leave the Trans Pennine Trail at Brook Fold Lane and head southeast to Little Acre Farm. This doesn't actually work, as the trail passes over Brook Fold Lane on a bridge (photo 2) and there's no direct way down. You have to backtrack to Firethorn Drive and walk through the housing development.

Furthermore between Brook Fold Lane and Little Acre Farm, there is a stream crossing (photo 3) which I found unnecessarily difficult. It's a steep scramble down one bank and up the other. The banks were muddy and slippery, and then you have to step over a crossing place in an electric fence (photo 4).

To avoid both the housing development and the stream, I would recommend turning south at Green Lane and going down to Mottram Old Road that way to rejoin the route. It means slightly less pasture and more pavement, but would be faster and safer, and about as direct. I haven't personally scouted this bit of route yet, but will do it if I get a chance.

The rest of the route is fine to follow as-is, and takes you through pretty woods, up and down steps and over stiles. Parts of this route are on the Trans Pennine Trail (photo 5) which is generally wheel-able, but the whole route can't be recommended for wheels. Mid-route, you pass by Lymefield, which has a tea room and other facilities (photo 6). Near the Glossop end, you pass by Hargate Hill and there may be horses in the fields, so walkers with dogs or wary of large animals should take note.

Path surfaces: pavement, dirt track, deep mud, steep stream banks, stepping stones in stream, pasture with sheep, pasture with horses
Obstacles: narrow gates, A-frames (photo 7), chicane (Glossop), many stiles (photo 8), stairs (photo 9).
