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.

  1. Complete the survey training.

Without adding much to the shortest route, this brings the pleasure of Ham Woods and Central Park to an otherwise urban yomp.

Nice walk through suburban streets, a peaceful stretch through Ham Woods and then good use of Central Park. Exeter City fans be warned: this route goes right past Home Park's Devonport End! No obstructions and good access throughout.

Easy to walk, mostly flat although there is a fairly steep hill around Fletemoor Rd. on the way to Ham Woods.

There are public toilets just past the Tamar Bridge near the toll booths, and on Central Park near the Life Centre.

A scenic route, taking in the views over the River Tamar, Ham Woods, and Central Park. It does involve walking through some residential areas, but the traffic is not too busy usually.

The only places where traffic might be a problem are St. Budeaux Square and as you get closer to the City Centre. Traffic on the Tamar Bridge can get really busy at certain times, but there are cycle routes alongside the pedestrian footpath on the Bridge.

However, the route between Ham Woods and Central Park is confusing. It passes through a residential area, and I got lost trying to follow the route. I had to use Google Maps for directions to Central Park. It could just be my mistake, but I'm not 100% certain that the map is accurate for this area. You might need to have an app like Google Maps to get through that section.
