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 ran this route from Pyle to Porthcawl,
Pleasent enough run until you get to the golf course....the route asks you to go through but no access. Going round isn't a problem with some lovely country lanes leading to Porthcawl.

A lot of roads where nicer footpaths could seemingly have been chosen - but otherwise a clear and easy walk.


20 May 2021 Spring

Part of this walk could be more direct, especially through the village of Nottage. I will upload an alternative route.
Part of the walk takes you through fields which sometimes have horses in them and are muddy after rain (wear wellies or walking boots).
Part of the route has kissing gates - no good for wheelchair users.
Part of the route (country lanes) is liable to flooding above ankle depth after prolonged periods of heavy rain - wear long wellies, rather than walking boots.
There are pavements or footpaths for much of the route.
