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.

Midland Walker

There's some issues with this route, starting at the Coalville end, it takes two long foot paths which are more like long alleyways, sandwiched between the fences of back gardens on either side. I think most people would be probably avoid these and be happier walking along the reasonably quiet residential streets - Gutteridge Street and Highfield Road.

Further along, the route takes a footpath from St Mary's Avenue to Frearson Road, but there isn't a footpath between these roads. The route needs to continue to the end of St Mary's Avenue and onto Manor Road.

Thereafter the route crosses a number of country fields, so unlikely to be suitable at night or in wet weather. An alternative would to be take Midland Road to Elistown, then Ibstock road and Leicester road over to Ibstock, these have paved foot paths.
