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.

Quite straight forward down to Wormwood Scrubs, which was a welcome piece of green down to the prison and to the hospital. A bit confused with the path and ended up going over steep steps down to a fairly straight road to Shepherds Bush. Lots of places for refreshment.

For Old Oak Common please begin or end your walk outside the train depot. The Slow Ways network is future proofed and this Slow Ways node will be ready in 2026.

This is a route that minimises contact with busy roads. The first section passes alongside Wormwood Scrubs playing fields and Hammersmith hospital.
I only noticed steps to use the footbridge that crosses the busy Westway road. Assuming there is no ramp nearby, the route will need to be modified for wheelchair users.
The route then goes through a collection of roads that are named after places in Commonwealth countries e.g. Bloemfontein Road, Australia Road. The BBC Studios - now being converted to flats - and Queens Park Rangers football stadium are nearby.
The highlight of the route was Hammersmith Park. There is a Japanese garden, with a pond. It is an area of tranquillity, just before reaching the hustle and bustle of Shepherd's Bush Market.
