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.

Two massive problems. 1 On Gentleshaw Hill at SK 0502 1086 you are directed to follow a right of way where the path does not exist. Marked on the map but not there. There are alternatives and I chose one for Norrug two. 2 At SK 0360 1480 In Regents Wood you are direct to follow a path up a steep hillside. As I discovered, the steep hillside exists, but not the trail. I've managed to keep as much of this route as possible in Norrug two but this second problem needed quite a steep detour.

    Forgot to mention that at SK 0447 1632 Coppice Lane at the Rugeley end the track does not follow the right of way so the Slow Way is inaccessible.
