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.

Lovely walk in lovely weather

Only point on the 80% mark that didn’t make sense as you could of cut that bit off

Other than that a nice walk.

Enjoyable walk along mainly quiet back streets and green spaces. The route does need a couple of minor tweaks as mentioned in the other review - when you enter Queen's Road Cemetery rather than turning right and walking through the cemetery to a gate that is now permanently locked, head straight on across the cemetery and then bear slightly left to exit at another gate. This will bring you out further along Pawsons Road. Turn right and keep walking until you reach the locked gate where you can pick up the route again. Also, when walking along Dunbar Avenue, turn right onto Ederline Avenue and then right into Norbury Hall park.

Being a walk into the of North of London’s Borough of Croydon I wasn’t expecting an incredible amount of greenspace. This route is mostly through residential areas but it does have a couple of pleasant surprises.

The north exit from Queen’s Road Cemetery seems to be permanently locked.
However there is an exit on Pawsons Road almost directly opposite the Princes Road entrance.

The entrance to Norbury Hall Park is actually on Ederline Road. The park itself is delightful surprise and the highlight of the whole route.
