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.

Gradual climb out of Rugeley to Birches Valley where there are facilities. Route seemed to mainly follow the road from here towards Penkridge so followed a different route via Fairoak Pools and Brindley Heath for a more scenic option. Roadwalk to edge of Hednesford but plenty of verge, then across a clear bridleway to A34. Last 3 miles though are not recommended. Back on original route from a roundabout along Pottal Pool Road. Clearly a cut through with high levels of traffic doing 60mph with no verge. Safer option might be to route north to pick up the Heart of England/Staffordshire Way.

The road from Pottal Pool to the junction with Cannock Rd is heavily trafficked with frequent large lorries. There is no verge to walk on and a Slow Wayer has indicated that this road is dangerous for pedestrians.
