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.

Completed this walk from Southam today. I really enjoyed this great route which barely has any road walking, and as such can recommend with five stars.

The route between Southam and Ufton has many kissing gates and a few narrow footbridges, but after Ufton, the route is easy, especially along the canal section. The 10th century Holy Well on the way provides some historic interest.

The views from the beer garden of the White Hart are excellent, and is a great spot for refreshments.
The Ridgeway section from Ufton towards the canal has been significantly widened to accommodate HS2 construction traffic, but it was quiet when I was there.
