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.

A very pleasant route. One change which is needed I have included in the photos. As the route shown near the A6 is overgrown and impassable. A slight detour makes this an excellent Riverside and lakeside walk. The detour from the south starts at Cossington Lane at SK 954 129 and goes down the steps (shown in the first photo) onto the riverside path, continues north with the river on the right until after 300 m you pass through a gate and then go diagonally left to a yellow marker by the A6 underpass where you re-join the route out onto Loughborough Road. From Mountsorrel direction go under the A6 but do not turn immediately right/ Go diagonally right to a yellow marker and a gate in the far corner. This takes you down to the riverside path, continue to Cossington Lane and back on route. The 2nd two photos show the extent of undergrowth on the identified route along the A6 (between Cossington lane at SK594129 and the A6 underpass at SK592 133. I found it to be impassable at the time of the walk. Leics.CC informed. However, in my opinion even if that path is cleared the route as described is better, in that it is more direct, shorter and along the river rather than the A6. The suggested alternative is shown on the map in 4th picture on the red line. However, this was an otherwise excellent route, easy to follow, easy to walk with riverside and lakeside paths. A very nice day out. The Hope and Anchor at Syston is conveniently placed along the walk.

    No photos found but I guess this refers to J53 - Footpath From Bridleway J100, Wanlip to Loughborough Road, north of Rothley. So what do we do?

    Re-route onto the road and let the footpath fester?
    Submit a report asking that the path be cleared?
    Leave it to someone else to sort out?

    Yes, thank you. This was reported to Leicestershire CC in November.. I personally have not been back since to see if any changes have taken place. I would welcome an update from anyone who has.
