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 perfectly usable route and easy to follow. There is a slight inaccuracy in the mapping around the cricket /hockey pitch in St Georges, but the route is obvious. If you have time, there are worthwhile diversions , going via Church Aston gives a more pleasant road walk at the start, the monument in Lilleshall is worth the climb, as is the hill to the left in the Granville LNR., but these would make it less direct.

Lovely walk. Very scenic. Enjoyable route. Definitely good enough to be part of the network. I would walk it again.It is a safe walk.No access issues.

Bit of everything I thought; (in no particular order) footpaths, woods, water pools, bridges, slight inclines, mud, one stile, historical features. I thought it was a safe accurate route I would happily walk again and recommend to others.

We walked the route from Newport bus station to Telford railway station, 9 miles
The first part involves walking to The Last Inn along the pavement, then you take the lane adjacent to the main road and escape the traffic. Crossing that road is quite dangerous with speeding cars. Once across you are in a rural setting.
The path by New House Farm is always very very mucky where the cows have been and this is unavoidable .
We found the route easy to follow, and had a lunch stop in Granville where there are several picnic stops.
The view points such as Lilleshall monument and 'Top of the World' in Granville would make an interesting diversion if you wanted to add to the walk.
We arrived at Telford railway station where there are also bus stops and taxis.
