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.

  1. Complete the survey training.

There are too many problems with this present route. It uses a permissive path alongside the Staunton Harold Reservoir then travels along a private lane where walkers are not welcome at all. At Coal Lane the path is blocked at Coppice House Farm (has been since 2013), the County Council is aware. West of Hartshorne a large new housing estate is being built which will affect PROWs for some time. I'll try and work out an alternative route.
