Surveys

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.

The first part of this route passes through a Yorkshire Water treatment works. There is no public right of way. The route needs changing at the start.

A pleasant shorter walk between Langsett and Stocksbridge, but currently with quite a lot of walking on quiet lanes (admittedly with attractive views across the valley). There is a major problem with the suggested first section, which indicates that you can walk from Langsett and the top of the dam wall down through the Yorkshire Water treatment works to Bridge Holme: you can't! Big walls and fences everywhere, and no paths. There's a much better route anyway - walk SW on the pavement beside the road across the dam wall, follow the road for approximately 200 yards beyond the end of the dam, then take a signposted footpath down to the left by the edge of Cliff Wood (also following the signed route of the Peak District Boundary Walk). This brings you to the stream/outflow from the reservoir above and is a delightful walk through the woods with bluebells just coming out right now (early May 2021). From there follow the route as indicated, along a walled muddy farm track to Lop Farm, then along the quiet lane to Midhopestones. From here there's a better alternative to following the next quiet lane on the far side of Mortimer Road, the old turnpike road: follow Chapel Lane down to Mortimer Road, turn left and go past Ye Olde Mustard Pot pub on the left, and about 50 yards later there's a gate on the right and a clear footpath signed to Yorkshire Water's Underbank IRE (Reservoir). This section of the path beside the reservoir isn't shown on OS maps but is clear on Open Cycle Map and others, and is maintained to the same standard as the equally lovely section beyond Underbank Activity Centre and the sailing club shown on the map. These two sections of path take you all the way to the edge of Stocksbridge. Gradients on the whole route are mostly gentle, and the only narrower section of path is the delightful section through Cliff Wood near the start. There are a few stiles during the first section too. A pleasant walk and the route is easy to follow (with the alterations suggested). Be aware though that you'll be able to hear constant traffic from the busy A616 (Stocksbridge - Woodhead Pass - Manchester) most of the way, albeit some hundreds of yards away.
