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.

Straightforward walk along pavements. Figges Marsh is best bit. Crossing at Tooting Station is easy but not Longley Road at its junction. Supermarkets and other shops at each end. Toilets in Mitcham Library on right of route.

I was immersed in a beautiful snowy Tooting Common and crossed the main road onto Storey Road and straight down to Mitcham Road. It was busy and traffic congested crossing a busy junction.

A straightforward, entirely pavement based walk. Leaving the shops and eateries of Mitcham, you pass Figge's Marsh as the wide open space section of the walk. As you come into Tooting and get to the station you turn left into Longley Road. If you haven't anticipated this, crossing is tricky and I'm not really convinced by this section away from the main street. You then turn right into Bickersteth Road, a residential street which eventually joins up with Mitcham Road which you follow up to the meeting place at Tooting Broadway. Tooting bustles and has a lot of independent shops, eateries and bars. Special mention to the Antelope, which I visited with my local guide. It does food and choice of beers are excellent. So this route is definitely worth adding to the network but loses a mark for the needless turn away from the main road.

Route is direct and easy to follow although the section on Mitcham Road is very busy with pedestrians which can make it awkward to get past the bus stops (esp with a pushchair or wheelchair). London Road in Mitcham can be quite polluted at busy times. Gradient of Longley Road up to the railway bridge is steep and the junction there hard to cross.

    Crossing from Tooting Common I stated on the main road and walked down to Mitcham Road. It is uninspiring link route. It is nice to have the greenery of Figges Marsh.
