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.

I walked this from St Albans to Radlett. The first part of the route quickly leaves St. Albans itself, and then follows the Alban way for a bit, and then the Abbey Line Trail - both former railway lines. It then follows the river Ver trail, which can be muddy in places. There is also a need to cross a rather soggy meadow. At least they have put the posts back up which were missing when I walked the Alban Way some months ago. The Frogmore lakes were lovely too. Up until going underneath the M25, this route would have been a 5 star one, but unfortunately the last 1½ mile is along a road, and although not unsafe as there is a segregated path for for most of the length, not entirely pleasant.
