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.

A thoroughly pleasant walk, starting from Longbridge. The first section goes through a pedestrianised area on the site of the old Austin Factory, there are many places here for refreshments or supplies. It then crosses to the A38, which it follows for a short while. This is probably the least pleasant section of the walk, but it is not for long. There is a turning to the right and you soon pick up a cycle path which joins the Rea Valley Way as far as Frankley, where there are the last shops until you get to Romsley. Having left the Rea Valley Way, the route then joins the route of an old railway. You enter a cutting but this leads to a dead end (as I discovered on Romlon one!) so you take a set of steps to get to the top and join another path. An underpass takes you under the M5 and into Worcestershire where suddenly the scene is much more rural. There are some great views towards the Black Country as you navigate the paths, which I did find quite boggy, which in February shouldn't be a surprise. The countryside is gentle, the paths pretty easy to follow and you soon see the hill you have to climb to get to Romsley. It seems quite daunting, but the climb is gradual and gentle. Romsley itself is a pretty village in a great location for views. There are a few shops and a couple of pubs, one of which, the meeting point is outside of. This route is direct, offroad, varied, safe and enjoyable to walk. A successful Slow Way.
