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 walked from Prestwood to Amersham. For the most part I really enjoyed it, the one major drawback being the A413 crossing. The traffic was fast-moving but taking a couple of minutes to see how long I would have to cross was useful. The road-walking at the start I had much less of a problem with as it was generally quiet, on pavements, or both.
The route overall was very easy to follow, mostly on clear paths. I walked after quite a dry week and the ground was mostly hard except for the BOAT in Atkins Wood which a previous reviewer mentioned - I managed to get past by going round the side where the mud was drier than it looked at first. There were a couple of other paths which looked like they could get muddy but there were planks to help out if needed.
There were plenty of places to stop on the way, both pubs and benches for rest.

It's a lovely walk, but I docked one star due to the street walking in Prestwood, which was a little too long. I walked this on a semi-sunny Friday afternoon without any precipitation in the last week, from Prestwood to Amersham.

Besides a few minor hills at the start, this walk was mostly down hill through woods with sometimes muddy paths, a little more street walking in Little Kingshill and then most of the last stretch was through farmland into Old Amersham. And from there it was a massive steep climb up to the station at Amersham proper.

We walked this route from Amersham to Prestwood. Navigation was easy, and refreshments en route are available at The Crown or Red Lion in Little Missenden, or nearer the end at The Full Moon in Little Kingshill. The paths are generally in good condition, though sections in Atkins' Wood (where it is a bridleway) frequently get very muddy. Overall, it was a very enjoyable walk.
