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.

I walked the route after a long period of rain and the Canal towpath was quite slippery.

Route from Tring was quite straightforward. The only issue is ensuring that you cross over the canal bridge from west to east side. I didn't and had to walk an extra 3km to the next crossing point with a much longer raod walk.

Didn't enjoy the last few km as it was initially along a busy road with no pavement then, on pavement, alongside another noisy road.

It seems minor, but was bad enough to make me follow the wrong path. At SP 9174 1301 you are encouraged to follow a path to the left which then turns right around the edge of the woods. The footpath has been diverted and you can still see where it used to be. I've amended the route and reviewed the corrected version in Tripit two.

Pleasant flat route taking in Canal towpaths, going round local reservoirs.

Pass through the outskirts of Tring before reaching Wendover arm of the Grand Union Canal. Then around the reservoirs that feed the Grand Union. Onto the Grand Union Canal towpath at Marsworth. Heading North, at Manor Farm do not continue on the west bank towpath, cross over the bridge onto the east side and follow canal before turning off right across field to the road. From there follow road into Pitstone.

NOTE: If you use Outdooractive app, take care at Manor farm. Although the GPX file is correct (checked in Ordinance Survey app), Outdooractive may show you continuing on the west side of the canal which means you finish up on the wrong side and cannot access the footpath leading to Pitstone. This means either going back or walking an extra 1/2 mile up the towpath to the next exit point and walk back down the road.
