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.

A direct and safe route which makes sensible use of green spaces available. I started it from the Smethwick end on a Saturday morning. The first part goes through the residential area of Londonderry, there is pavement throughout and easy crossings of roads. Just over half way through, you cross Barnford Hill Park which was a particular highlight for me. The route is across the park is not -the- most direct, but it gave me more opportunity to enjoy it and it was very easy to follow. Having left the park, the descent down Barnford Crescent gives views across to other parts of the Black Country which was nice. The A4123 was the busiest road to cross, but there is a pedestrian crossing at the end so it was no problem. Saying that, technically one of the next roads, the M5 was the busiest to cross, but to do that all I had to do was follow pavement of the B4169 Oakemoor Road which passes high over it. From there it was a short walk to the meeting point at Rowley Regis Station. Did I enjoy this? Would I follow it again? Yes to both. Could it be improved? Did it fail as a Slow Way at all? No to both. Full marks!.
