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 on May 2nd, 2021, from RWB to Swindon. The route begins on the shopping high street then continues out of town along pavements at the edges of roads.

The section between the edge of town, over the M4 to Lydiard could do with some improvements, as it tries to cross invisible rights of way that are badly signposted and in places not maintained by local landowners, I made several detours, unable to find the route on the ground. This section involves quite a number of stiles.

The Lydiard Park (and environs) crossing is lovely, and the rest of the route follows mostly cycle paths in Swindon, it could be improved in a few places (for example it crosses the busy Great Western Way above ground).
