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 this from Princess Risborough to High Wycombe on a warmish autumn morning, which was a little foggy (As the photos show).
It was a delightful route. It hadn't rained a lot in the past week, but it was still a little muddy in some places.

From Princess Risborough you quickly end up on lovely paths at field edges, with red kites circling above. It's a little up-and-downy. At Loosley Row there is a lovely set of farm houses, and then there is a stretch of road walking, albeit not very long and with a reasonable pavement. It goes up from here on. Near Lacey Green there were some cows in the field, but they ignored me. They were quite far away. After a few stretches through some more fields (without animals), the route continues through wooded lanes and along the edges of fields with crops. At one point there was a bunch of guys shooting grouse/pheasants, with their dogs fetching the fallen birds. The colours of the trees were awesome here. Bradenham Wood was gorgeous again, although I did get a little bit lost as the paths were hard to see due to all the leaves! The village of Saunderton looked very picturesque from the hill side. There is a shortcut at Bradenham's church, and you don't have to do the silly dogleg, although you can. From there on there are more wooded paths, and you go up again towards Hughenden Manor. From there it is a pleasant walk down the hill through the park, to end up besides the road going past lots of new developments. From there on it is a short stretch towards High Wycombe besides roads with pavemements.

Lovely route.

The route was pretty well mapped and mostly easy, apart from a large amount of mud in the woods at Knaphill Common, which required a lot of detouring. The first section, across fields, is easy and scenic. Uphill on the road to Lacey Green is less so. After Lacy Green we encountered some mad cows in a field, one of whom chased us rather assertively. The do-leg at Bradenham could be shortened by walking across the green in front of the church, unless you want to go to the Red Lion pub by the main road.

Several coffee shops in Princes Risborough (including Crumbs Too), and café in Hughenden Manor stableyard. Red Lion pub at Bradenham is open Tuesday to Sunday, 10.00 to 4.30.

A great route through beautiful scenery and passing by Bradenham Manor and Hughenden Manor (both of which were home to Benjamin Disraeli).

The section from Princes Risborough to Bradenham Woods car park goes through rolling hills with sweeping views but does contain some stiles that might present an obstacle to the less mobile (there is a list of obstacles at the end of this review). While walking this section we also walked through a field that had cows in it (although we didn't bother them, and they didn't bother us). After this, there is a bit of a detour via the Red Lion at Bradenham, which you could cut short if you were not in need of refreshment. The section through Naphill and Downley common is best navigated with the aid of mapping software, unless you have a really good sense of direction.

Obstacles (latitude, longitude).
Stiles at:
51.7099876,-0.823285 (This one is particularly tricky because it is missing a step!)
51.694023, -0.813000
Field with cows at 51.6934814,-0.811935.
