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.

26 Nov 2023 Autumn

I completed this walk yesterday walking northwards from West Haddon. Both this walk and Stawes two were not walked when I was researching which to take, and despite this being slightly longer I chose this as their was slightly less road walking involved with this route. Maybe it was the stunning late autumn weather but I really enjoyed this walk and I believe it's worth five stars. I wasn't expecting a route which involved two miles of road walking to be so enjoyable, but there was not much traffic on the road at all and there was a safe verge to take refuge whenever one appeared.

The route takes you out of West Haddon very quickly, along the Jurassic Way through a subway under the A428 (photo 2) and then towards Winwick with great views ahead. The OS map shows a more direct route past Winwick, and I wondered why this route took you through a slightly longer route past the Mill House, but the slight diversion proved worthwhile as we caught sight of some alpacas in the well kept grounds of the Mill House.

Just north of Winwick, the route leaves the Jurassic Way for a short while as it joins a restricted gated road towards Elkington (photo 7), where the Jurassic Way rejoins our route when we get to the road (photo 8). Here the route joins the Grand Union canal (photos 9-11) for nearly 2 miles. The route leaves the canal at the Yelvertoft Road which then takes you all the way to Stanford (photos 12-15).

There are gates and a few steps to negotiate on the walk, but no stiles or footbridges. The only chance for refreshments are at West Haddon, there is nothing at all at Stanford on Avon or en route so you will need to plan accordingly. I joined this route up with another by then walking onwards from Stanford to Rugby. I can recommend this route which was was plotted well and very enjoyable when I did the walk.
