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 quite a nice walk once you get out of Marple Bridge - as you pass by Brown Low, there are far-reaching views in both directions. The reason it's not 5 stars is that until roughly Mill Brow, the route is mostly on narrow lanes with frequent cars passing and no pavement (photo 1), so that section is difficult to recommend. Someone with good local knowledge might be able to improve it, but it's very possible that's the best available route.

I would also mention that Gird Lane (photo 2) is rocky and quite steep, and when I visited after a relatively dry week it had water running down it, so I would advise caution in heavy weather or icy conditions.

All of that said: this is a good route! It ascends directly from Marple to Brown Low (or as close as you can get: Brown Low barrow is on private land but can be seen from the footpath) and from there, descends easily through fields of sheep to Charlesworth, which is a nice intermediate stop with a general store (photo 3) and a pub. Continuing out of Charlesworth, the route passes through a farm (photo 4) where the landowners have been very reasonable about the footpath, putting up clear signage and only asking that walkers don't stray from the path. There were horses in two fields I passed through, so walkers wary of large animals should be aware. After the farm, you reach the outer suburbs of Glossop (photo 5) and it's all easy pavement walking.

I'm not a cyclist but I imagine many parts of this would be impassable for wheels. Recommending for people with waterproof shoes who are able to walk uphill on uneven ground, walk on roads without pavement, cross fields containing farm animals, and climb stiles. The GPX track is excellent and I had no trouble following it.

Path surfaces: pavement, road verge, dirt track, loose rocks, pasture with sheep, pasture with horses
Obstacles: kissing gate, chicane (Glossop), many stiles (photo 6), short flight of steps (photo 7).
