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 route is , in the main, walkable. There is one part in Sutton that is probably not public. See Marknew two to resolve this and for a better way into Newport. The first 8.5 miles give very easy navigation , but 8 miles along a tow path, that can be very muddy in places, may not be everyone's ideal. Some of the field paths had clearly been walked and so were easy to follow, most were waymarked. In late autumn the crops were down which helped. A certain degree of agility is required to climb awkward stiles and make the connection between the end of a footpath bridge and the ground. On the plus side there are some beautiful buildings, including a very interesting church in Forton. There is an impressive 360 degree view, near Warton Grange. The canal is not without interest, the locks are very attractive.
