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.

Paulyoung — 17 Aug 2021

I walked this route from Motspur Park to Tolworth in August 2021. There is not a lot of green space on this route but that can only be expected in a built up area such as this. I also missed a couple of turns which meant I was on a road more than necessary.

The first turn I missed was near the junction of Portland Avenue and Malden Road. After turning right into Malden Road there is a road leading to Manor Park where you can walk parallel to the main road for a short bit.

The second turn was on Church Road B284 just after St John’s church. There is an opening on the left leading away from the road into a wooded area.

A bigger problem was not being able to find a footpath alongside the Hogsmill River between Barrow Hill and the Toby Jug pub.which meant walking on a main road, Church Road B284, with no footpath or grass verges to safely walk. A few times I had to step off the road for safety. This footpath is not shown on other maps either – see photos. The Hogsmill River Trail website offers an alternative route between St John’s Church and the Toby Jug pub https://www.surreycc.gov.uk/__data/assets/pdf_file/0006/98547/ES-Hogsmill-River-Trail-Part-One.pdf

From the Toby Jug pub I was able to join the Hogsmill River Trail and be away from traffic – but not from noise due to the Kart Raceway close by.

Overall, an interesting route and once the section between St John’s Church and the Toby Jug is sorted will be easier and safer.
