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.

I haven't walked the whole of this route, but I have walked NesSho Three (in attempting NesSho One) which starts from Shotton along the same route. I found it difficult to find how to start the route from the Shotton end. NesSho Two is so inaccurately drawn that non-locals would struggle. It has you walk along the railway line then fly like a crow until you reach the corner of Tenth Avenue. Therefore I am marking this route as not accurate enough. NesSho Three shows the exact route to follow until you are the other side of the River Dee, if that helps!.

A good, mostly flat, route using well paved footpaths, but only for foot or cyclists. The Neston end may be too muddy, and lots of kissing gates, for bikes or wheelchairs, and there are pinch gates and stairs at Shotton station, but rest of the route is along a good stretch of quiet road or wide paths, with a section of boardwalk. Despite a brief excursion through an industrial estate, it's a lovely walk along a nice stretch of the Dee salt marsh.

    Is there a way of crossing the lower railway line (parallel to the River Dee) to get between the Shotton end of the route, and the footpath/cycletrack that crosses the Dee without using a flight of stairs? If not, it's not really accessible.

    Unfortunately not; just for walkers or cyclists. The Shotton lower line isn't great for wheelchair or buggy users. I can't find any way of getting across the tracks at this point.

    Not a lot of help, sorry. No wheelchair access is available to platforms 1, 3 or 4 - the former is only accessible via footbridge, whilst the latter two both have steep ramps unsuitable for wheelchairs and mobility-impaired users. Platform 2 can be reached via a shallow ramp from the small car park at the end of Alexandra Street.

An easy walk that for most of it's length follows an established paved cycle route, saying that the first mile or so down to the Dee Marshes doesn't, the last part of this section to the bottom of Marshlands Road and The Harp Inn can be very muddy when wet, The route then follows the edge of the Marshes (popular with bird watchers) to Deeside, the section through the Ind. Est. shouldn't spoil your enjoyment.

A straightforward route that is flat and mostly paved although you do need to watch out for speeding bikes and those cyclists who also don't ring their bells to warn you.

Accessible as it follows a cycle route. Beware of the occasional speeding cyclist. Raised walkway over the marshes. A brief walk round an industrial estate but pavements throughout.
