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 walked this route in reverse, starting in St Austell.

This is a brilliant slow way. I can confirm that the whole route was easy to follow on the ground and there were no issues with navigation. It was an interesting mix of lanes and footpaths, passing through the characterful villages of Sticker and Polgooth. Both of these villages had some amenities as did Hewas Water and Grampound, so plenty of options along the way.

Exiting St Austell was swift and satisfactory, cutting through the cemetery next to the train station, to then descend to the major double roundabout on the southern end of town. Entering Probus was ok, although the closure of road linking the A390 to Parkengear Vean closer to the centre of the village, meant I took an alternative route though a new build estate paralell to said road. It looked like a temporary road closure that should re-open in due course, at least to walkers and bikers.

A point to note is the lack of public footpath sign when coming off the A390 at St Mewan. It's easy to miss, but cutting across that field will bring you into an industrial estate where the footpath continues.

Another thing to note is the availability of a path in the woodland on the southern side of the A390 west of Trewithen House. To get onto the path, you need to walk a very short distance down the driveway of Trewithen House/Gardens.

All busy roads had good quality pavements, and I felt safe throughout the walk.

Overall this is a great slow way, one that is fit to join the verified network for sure!.
