Description

This route uses Low Traffic Neighbourhoods in residential areas plus paths alongside and through local cemeteries/Wanstead flats, with the exception of the need to use the A118 route to cross the River Roding for a few minutes at the Ilford end.
It follows the route of the Stratford to Ilford railway, so Forest Gate and Manor Park Stations are on route. Manor Park Cemetery and Crematorium opening times can be found here https://www.mpark.co.uk/ . If it is closed an easy green diversion round its northern edge is via Whitta Road, Capel Road and Ridley Road, which adds about 1/4 mile to the route

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.

This is a good quality and direct route.

The first half mile from Stratford station is on busy commercial roads. For the next one and a half miles, the route is on mostly quiet residential streets, apart from short stretches or crossings of busier roads.

Next is the pleasant Manor Park Cemetery. The cemetery closes at 5pm in the summer and 3:30pm in the winter, necessitating a diversion of over half a mile around the north perimeter.

The next half mile or so is along quiet residential streets and along the south edge of the Manor Park section of Wanstead Flats.

Up to this point the whole route is on paved surfaces. The next section is nearly half a mile of unpaved footpath running outside the south boundary of the City of London Cemetery. I walked it on a fine day when it was a very nice stretch. In wet weather it has muddy patches and puddles. The surface is uneven in a few places.

I met no-one else on the footpath although it was a fine, late March Sunday afternoon. As the path runs between two high fences, some people might feel uncomfortable with the isolation of this section. My daughter told me that it occasionally has groups of men hanging around, and there are drugs paraphernalia. If preferred, this footpath can be avoided by crossing the road bridge over the railway and going straight down to Romford Road. This diversion which would also be good in bad weather for those without muddy-path footwear, and for non-rough terrain wheelchair users.

At the east end of the footpath, the route cuts down to the very busy A118 Romford Road, for the last half mile to Ilford station.
