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.

Like Stuart, I am not convinced this is a route I'd recommend to a visitor. Starting from Sarn and working to Bridgend: I know people who can't cope with walking the flyover bridge that crosses the M4 motorway because of the speed & noise of the traffic below. As most of the route is road based, I would have turned left at Penycae and walked up the pavement towards the shops and then right at the roundabout to Litchard Hill. Instead the route crosses Litchard Common with its network of interlocking unsigned paths, only one or two of which open into the housing estate. If the intention of this route was to provide quick, easy access between Sarn and Bridgend then following the A4061 from Sainsbury's is perfect: the road is pavemented for the entire route, clearly signed and apart from the necessary alertness at crossing some busy junctions, no trouble for walkers. The pavements are not shared with cyclists and the road itself would require confidence to cycle on. Crossing the roundabout at the top of Litchard Hill and the traffic light junction at Litchard Cross is not something I would want to do with children or dogs in tow, or if I was mobility impaired. However, even as a woman who walks alone, I have never encountered any issues walking through any of the housing estates mentioned on the route and never felt vulnerable although I have only ever walked this route in daylight. If you want to walk between Sarn and Bridgend and time is not an issue, I suggest SarBri 2 which is much more picturesque and will take about 30 minutes longer.

Unfortunately this route has a few anomalies resulting in you getting very lost! When leaving Litchard and walking up the hill, take the first left into Celtic View (Not Bracken Way on the map). This will allow you to find the path that enters the small piece of common land adjacent to the outlet village.

This route is 100% road based running through some fairly run down council estates so I didn't feel particularly comfortable walking the route and the scenery wasn't great. I would recommend taking an alternative SARBRI route.

I've requested that this is removed due to the erorrs on the mapping.
