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.

A pleasant walk through well-heeled suburbia, chalky fields, and pretty woodland. There's a fair bit of ups-and-downs (inevitable when crossing the North Downs) and quite a bit of road walking, but where this occurs it's either on quite country lanes or slightly busier roads with pavements. There are a couple of places where busy roads have to be crossed, but generally there is either a zebra crossing, traffic lights or at the very least a traffic island in the middle to make crossing easier. The path quality is generally well signed and easy to follow (though pay attention for flying golf balls when crossing the Chelsfield Lakes Golf Course). There are steps in places, and some uneven terrain but a pair of trainers is sufficient, especially when the ground in dry.

One thing to note is that the OS Explorer map and the GPX track associated with this Slow Way are slightly out of date at Fairtrough Farm (the OS Landranger is correct though). The footpath no longer passes through Fairtrough Farm and instead emerges onto Port Lane further west. You can either use this or skip the footpath entirely by going directly along Fairtrough Rd (not heavily used by traffic) from the junction with Washneys Road/Perry Lane to the junction with Budgins Hill/Port Hill.
