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 an enjoyable walk that includes woodland, fields (and much mud), and pleasant residential parts of Maidenhead. I walked from Marlow. We soon came across the footpath tunnel under the A40 opened by Theresa May for flood defences, and the flat fields up to the wooden bridge are sometimes flooded. 200m from the route, in Bisham Woods, is the entrance to Bisham Abbey's 18th century ice house, restored in the 1980s. St Edmund Campion School has a delightful road crossing. Near the end of the route, the footpath was blocked by a Homebase and other large stores, which forced me to walk around them and on the other side of a small canal (York Stream), see attached image. The route finished in central Maidenhead, near the library.
The route is safe and accurate apart from the detour described. There are no stiles. I would walk it again.
Norden Farm Theatre in Maidenhead has an outdoor picnic area.

I found this route to be a non-starter and it should not be verified. I walked from the Maidenhead side where the route quickly attempts to take you down private roads, through buildings and along non-existing paths. There are walk-arounds along unattractive roads but in my view this route is beyond fixing. It's not sufficiently direct and is badly drawn. In the interests of finding a helpful solution, I've started mapping a route to post soon that will head south east from Marlow more directly heading towards Furze Platt and following byways south from North Town near York Stream and the Green Way into the top of Maidenhead.

This route is a little more than the 7 miles quoted and there is quite a steep climb through the woods. It has been extremely dry recently so the ground was easy to negotiate, but after rain some of the paths would have been too muddy for it to be a pleasant walk. The directions were fairly good although we were not sure about the GPS positioning just before The Hocketts in Fultness Wood. The Golden Ball Pub is about half way round and this is closely followed by The Pinkneys Arms, both (usually) serving food. We felt that the route was not as direct as it could have been from crossing the A4 at Maidenhead Thicket into the town centre. The route is not suitable for cyclists or wheelchairs.
