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.

A very straight forward route that is mainly along the tow path of the canal. I walked Elland to Sowerby Bridge and it's very straight forward though there were some restoration work being done so there were some diversions. Only downside of the route is the huge amount of fly tipping that is around the route.
