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.

The makings of a good route, but there's a few errors.

First, you don't have to walk down the residential Surrey and Gloucester Streets to access the Sutton Brook Greenway; you can to it directly from Parr Stocks Road.

Second, the footpath through Sutton Moss, despite marked on OS maps, goes right through a dense wood of silver birch and a boggy area, and doesn't appear to exist on the ground.

Lastly, access to Wheatacre Wood can be made earlier than suggested by this route map.

Like I said, the making of a good route; I've adjusted it slightly for SthBur Two.
