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 Kegworth to Shepshed along a well plotted route. A walk of three parts, to Long Whatton excellent walk no stiles. Onward to M1 bridge path is enclosed plus stiles. M1 to Shepshed again excellent walking. Nothing special about the landscape. Seats and a porch at Long Whatton church about half way, also two inns just off route.

Pavements on the short sections of busy roads, safe central reservation at by-pass crossing, otherwise very quiet lanes. Minor issues of alignment for plot but paths are well used and marked. South of Slade Farm boundary crossing not on definitive line, redundant stile, now a gap. Busy overhead with landing planes during my walk.

South of Long Whatton a mix of stiles and gates then narrow fenced and a bit overgrown south of Mitchell's Spring Farm, keep to the footpath at the mast, not the track. After the motorway crossing it's back to an excellent wide headland path alongside the wood, then a track becomes a road with pavement. A pleasant approach to Shepshed which has far more shops and services that I had expected.
