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 started this route from Longbridge. The fact that it sticks to the main road rather than using the pedestrianised walk by the college was not a deal breaker. Nor was the strange dog leg of how it continued along the A38 and then crossed a number of roundabouts, passing a number of chain eateries, to join the cycle track leading to the Rea Valley Way, rather than going through The Leys. At SO 9852 7862 you are expected to go straight ahead where there is a culvert, but to be fair it's fairly obvious that you need to choose a way round to go and cross the road. But at SO 9825 7885 in a stretch of old railway you are directed straight ahead when you should be directed to take the steps to the side of the cutting. Having reached the railway bridge, as instructed, I found there was no means to access the footpath on top of the bridge other than to turn back and find the steps. There's even a safety rail to prevent you scrambling up the bank. I shall post a new version of the route to fix these problems.

A very pleasant country walk with gates from Romsley then stiles. Pasture so livestock but not seen in February. Minor deviations from the definitive / plotted route but easy to follow. Recommended with Romhal as a better walk between Halesowen and Longbridge.

A walk up the village to The Swallows Nest Inn then across a large pasture field with signs for the Penny Fields Walk. Kissing gates with ample space for an orgy make their use so easy rather than the back pack removal required for some. Crossing the route of the Monarch's Way stiles replace the gates and navigation needs more care. The bridge under the motorway marks a change of scene as the route approaches New Frankley. A choice of parallel paths from here, the high level estate roads and paths or in the cutting the old rail line. Shops, mostly shuttered as I passed, but a Greggs provided a welcome takeaway drink and seats offered a place to watch buses terminate. The route continues as a cycle track but now more enclosed before passing through Balaam's Wood following the course of the River Rea. I could see no purpose in the road route around the retail park so transferred to Slow Way Hallon and continued along the cycle route to Longbridge station.

    Interesting that David found navigation challenging in the opposite direction. Just shows that we need reviews in both directions.
