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.

I walked this route in reverse, starting in Probus.

This is a very good slow way. I can confirm that the whole route was easy to follow on the ground and there were no issues with navigation. It felt like the majority of the walk was alongside/on roads, but there is still a good chunk of off road route too. From what I can see there are no great alternatives to the roads. Probus is a charming village, and I soon found myself deep into the countryside, travelling through beautiful woodland west of Tregurno, before emerging in Tresillian, roughly half way through the slow way. Tresillian has some ammenities, and is a good place for a rest alongside the creek if required. There are pavements along the A390 until the turn off to the lane that takes you up to Penair school. A gradual ascent to the top of Truro, and then a final steep descent brings you out at the town centre.

A couple of points to note:

- It is not clear that the long driveway to Lamellyn from Probus is a public right of way - signs seems to be absent. Do perservere though as the blue and yellow arrows of joy soon emerge.
- There is an option to turn off the main road through Tresillian (A390) earilier than the route indicates, to take a public right of way across a reedbed and rejoin the road into Truro. It's a little more pleasant than sticking on the busy and noisy road.
- The road that takes you into Truro, after turning off the A390 is quite a dangerous walk. It has some blind bends and is very narrow in places. It seems cars use it as a rat run despite being signposted as a "quiet lane".

Despite the issue with the busy lane at the end of the walk, it is still a good option for entering Truro in a direct way that avoids "main" roads. Overall a good slow way that gets my vote to become part of the network.
