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.

29 Aug 2021 Summer

We walked this route, starting at Holmes Chapel, on 25th August 2021. It was fine and dry and had been for a number of days. The Holmes Chapel end of the route was straightforward and easy, being mostly on a paved path through the housing area and then minor roads. However, towards Middlewich the Dane Valley Way becomes a footpath through fields. These would probably be fine in winter/spring, but we found it so overgrown with nettles that we abandoned our plan to return the same route. Will put our alternative up as Midhol route 2, which was also more direct, and had less obstacles. Only took photos on the return, so will post all of those on route 2.
