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.

Some great views on this route! The initial climb out of Stalybridge is a bit of a slog - it's a pavement beside a quiet residential road, then a turn onto a 'restricted byway' which is steeper. This is rewarded with the first vista of the route, which is back towards the towers of Manchester.

From there, it's sometimes paved / sometimes farm tracks / sometimes narrow pathways which may be muddy or rocky. You may occasionally be sharing a track with slow-moving cars, or with ridden horses. I didn't climb any stiles but there's at least one gate, and some steep sections as mentioned previously. Additionally when I did this route, it had rained heavily the day before and one path section in the Stalyhill area was just a stream of running water. Deep enough to get your shoes wet, not deep enough to prevent walking down it.

The section through Woolley/Brookfield is the pavement beside an A-road, and is unfortunately noisy, but probably unavoidable looking at the map there. The final push into Glossop is much prettier, with some woodland and more views.

Mid-route facilities: the Waggon & Horses is just about halfway, on the corner of Mottram Road and Matley Lane. Other than that, the paths are often closely confined by fences or barbed wire, so there are fewer places to sit and eat your sandwiches than on some other routes.
