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 an armchair-only review. This route is technically navigable (the riverside path problem is pretty short and looks easy to resolve) and it may be very attractive overall, and have lots of off road sections but it does all that at the expense of being direct (nearly twice the shortest possible route!) and of being safe.

The safety is a particular concern. The Mold Bypass crossing looks bad, it's national speed limit, there are no "pedestrian crossing" type signs, the footpath fingerposts are pretty much invisible at the distance a car-driver would need and the road has 3 lanes, with tarmac edging it;s the width of 4 lanes.

I've uploaded a new shorter version which still has some off road sections but is only 30% longer than the shortest possible route.

Riverside path 5 near Leadmills, Mold does not physically exist: Extinguished c 1914. Use back lane nearby instead. Dangerous crossing of 3 lane Mold Bypass A494. Path also very wet in places. Often cows grazing in fields.

    Hi Howard. Can you describe exactly which bit of the route is the extinguished Riverside Path 5 please? I'm trying to plot an alternative but I can't get to Mold and although Flintshire have an online Rights of way map I'm not sure if the path numbers fit. https://rightsofway.flintshire.gov.uk/standardmap.aspx

The section from Greenhill Farm to Well Street - across the fields, through the horse paddocks and the perimeter of the farm can get a bit boggy, even without bad weather. Stay on Rose lane and turn left onto Well Street to navigate around this small section, it's a relatively quiet road.
