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.

This is a beautiful route that cuts across the Norfolk Broads! I'd recommend wearing insect repellent in the summer as there are lots of biting bugs!

There were a few challenges, a missing plank in the bridge over a stream towards Loddon. The ground from Berney Arms to Reedham is super uneven and there are lots of holes, so worth wearing good boots with ankle support.

It costs 50p to get on the ferry across the river Yare (make sure you have change!) The route also requires quite a bit of road walking once you cross the river. The roads are very quiet so it's mostly fine but be prepared! You can get a bus from Loddon into Norwich.

All in all, a functional and scenic route!.

This route is mostly off-road and two thirds follows dyke paths alongside rivers and breydon water. The last third has more tarmac but these are country lanes with minimal traffic. The route follows the Wherryman's Way and is clearly signposted for the majority of the route. The paths are a mix of concrete block under grass which makes it steady underfoot and grass/worn to dirt. In places this was very overgrown -some plants were over five foot tall and flopping into the path (the path itself was shorter grass through use). A lot of it was well looked after even mowed. There are some variations to this route that removes a bit of tarmac but it was a nice change after some unsteady ground. The dyke paths in summer (all across Norfolk) tend to develop big cracks and this was a little unsteady at times when it coincides with long grass and reduced visibility of it occurring. See photos on a mowed section. This route includes the chain ferry at Reedham (50p per foot passenger) which is open from early to late but is sometimes closed for repair. There is not much protection from the elements between Great Yarmouth and Reedham so bear that in mind. Access wise it's a mixture of gates, kissing gates and one stile. Some of them are a little narrow.

It's a lovely route for wildlife and wide open skies and is great on the right day. The trees and woodland towards the end are very pleasant. Overall this was a lovely walk with pretty scenery, windpumps, cattle and livestock and wildlife.

Worth noting that there are three railway stations along the route so parts could be walked independently.
