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 started at Wokingham station in the direction of Spencers Wood. The first section of the route leads along a relatively busy Barkham road up to Barkham. Even though I'm not fully familiar with that area, I'm confident that a quieter route could be found out of Wokingham. A forest route to Arborfield Cross can have large pools of water and it may not be passable without soaking one's shoes. The main issue I have with this route, however, is the section between Arborfield and Shinfield. The area around the river Loddon was under water to such an extent that I had to make a big detour and return to the center of Shinfield later. The remaining part of the route is mainly through a built-up area but even then I couldn't follow it exactly because a building site cut across it at the edge of Shinfield. A better route should probably be suggested when the new estate at Shinfield is completed.
