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.

Not much to say about this other than I think it may be my first 5-star review. It's a really great route that is almost all in relatively flat countryside with very few stiles or hazards. I've not provided an alternative route, but it is possible to shorten this slightly by using the very minor roads. They are not at all busy, especially on lazy, misty Sunday mornings; except for cyclists. On the other hand, if you want to make it a nice long day out, you could always park at Westonbirt Arboretum (open from 9am) and go from there to Sherston first.

Also, slight alternatives, and a circular route to / from Malmesbury, can be found by going to the (excellent) 'White Walls Way' website at The photos that I have uploaded show the route from Malmesbury to Sherston, not vice versa.

If you do choose to start in Malmesbury, and are going by car, the Long Stay car park (old station car park) is at the bottom of the hill, below the Abbey, and next to a large Co-op. There is no need to climb up to the notional start point by the Town Hall (where there is limited short stay parking). And be aware that there is now a small charge for Sunday parking over 2 hours in the Long Stay.
