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 started this direct, easy to follow route from Hartwell on a hot day. I was thankful the route passes the Post Office (shop), as I'd run out of water on my other walks that day. There isn't much of Hartwell to see before you're offroad in countryside on footpaths which pass through wide open spaces before meeting up with the Midshires Way. The walk through a Wind Farm is quite something and you soon catch sight of the M1, which you cross via bridge. The next section, to the east of the motorway affords your first views of Northampton as you make your descent through mowed fields. Sadly this precedes a section of lane walking which was less than comfortable. Not unsafe enough to disqualify it, but uncomfortable enough to stop it being a 5 star Slow Way. The good news is, that beyond it is a series of urban and suburban parks, greenways and pavements that take you to the destination in central Northampton. In summary, having fixed the error in the original route, this has the makings of a really nice walk. It would be perfect if the lane walking could be eliminated, as it is the only element that prevents it from being completely safe. There are occasional pubs and shops along the way, although heavily at the Northampton end. That also applies to transport links. It's certainly interesting and beautiful, with variety of scenery and an abundance of wildlife along the way. It has stiles so has accessibility issues. Overall though, a welcome addition to the Slow Ways Network.
