Description

As I wanted to join 4 slowways together to allow me to walk to RHS Bridgewater I decided to walk a different route than the opening route. This was also due to a recent period of very wet weather.
The original route is also not wheel friendly where as this route is (albeit along a busy road) The Roe Green loop (last part) was very pleasant

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 chose this route as I wanted a more direct route to Walkden, and given a period of very wet weather I wanted to avoid some very muddy footpaths included in Ovewal one.

This route follows a busy road and while it is not very inspiring it is wheel friendly (parts of Ovewal one aren't). There are 2 significant diversions included in Ovewal one to allow the use of green corridors. These add 50% to the length of the walk (2 miles).

The last part of this walk follows the Roe Green Loop and is this is a very pleasant part of the walk. You join the well surfaced track via steps near to ///offer.shout.person.
