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.

A good Slow Way with an impressive amount of off-road paths considering one end is Swindon (about half off-road paths, about half sidewalks/pavements near Swindon). Note there are also several series of steps in the Swindon half of the route. There is one big issue - a new warehouse center has been built just outside of Swindon and the Slow Way route has you walking right directly through it!! I took a long detour around, down Kingsdown Road and Ermin Street, but I think there is a way to go around the warehouse and meet back up with the Slow Way before crossing the motorway. Someone more well-versed in the local area would be able to investigate that. Otherwise, the route is a perfectly good Slow Way!.
