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.

Returning from Newcastle I found this route an improvement on the outward journey but steps to or from Richmond Street Park must make access difficult for any user. This route under the railway at Stoke is better.

Having walked the road between Newcastle and Hartshill I investigated an alternative, which I found and enjoyed but it was or had been a gated path so I'm reluctant to suggest it. It did however offer more green space and was an off road route.

These are two settlements I have walked between many many times, but never using this route. The result was that I discovered a new way to walk it, and a park I didn't know was there! I started from Stoke. The beginning is functional but safe and direct. Having crossed under the railway and then over the canal and A500, you turn right at the front of the Civic Centre. After a few twists and turns through the edge of the town centre (including past the Spode Works and a few arts spaces) you turn right to join the A52 road to Newcastle. A steep walk normally, but even steeper in this one! You divert off into St Andrews Square and up some steps into Richmond Park (a route which can not be wheeled but I shall post a wheelable version). Having crossed the park, from which you can get great views across the Potteries, you've finished the climb and find yourself in the leafy neighbourhood of Hartshill. From the quiet residential streets you rejoin the A52 and follow the pavement to Newcastle past multiple independent shops, restaurants and pubs. I really enjoyed this walk, it was direct, safe, interesting, really easy to follow and packed a lot into its 4km. The steps into Richmond Park will be a problem for some but I was able to walk an accessible version on my return which I will post shortly. I walked it as part of a normal day out and wore street shoes. A very welcome addition to the network.
