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.

Twyford to Maidenhead (Twymai 1) review.

A straightforward Slow Way between conurbations that does a good job of keeping to footpaths where possible.

From Twyford train station it’s a short urban walk to the rail bridge (Photo 1) and onto footpaths.

There were horses grazing on the approach into Waltham St. Lawrence (Photo 2). There is a village break point at The Bell pub.

The Slow Way continues through woods with grazing sheep (Photo 3) and across Shottesbrooke Park (Photo 4).

There’s another break point at White Waltham, at The Beehive.

The approach into Maidenhead is along footpaths that skirt a farm and Lillibrooke Manor. As pointed out in other reviews, the footpath by the manor drive is not obvious from the Maidenhead direction (Photo 5, on the left).

The urban walk into Maidenhead follows the cycle route to the train station, via a park; and then to the town centre.

Walked Twyford to Maidenhead. I really enjoyed this route and am happy to recommend it.

It is drawn a little roughly, but I didn’t have any problems following it and going the right way.

The controversial misrouting, which others have commented on, is at Lillibrook Manor. I think it’s the result of the public right of way being moved from the main driveway, to the field alongside, at some point in the past, but OS maps hasn’t caught up and still shows it coming up the main drive. In addition, the finger post which ought to help is covered in foliage and practically invisible. So … at Lillibrook Manor follow the path in the field alongside the main gravel drive, whichever direction you are coming from! (2nd photo is the entry point).

At Twyford I found the best refreshments were at a cycle shop called the Bia Hub, that has a cafe too!! It is a few metres off the route, on Waltham Road, near to the railway station. Can recommend (1st photo). There wasn’t anything at the station.

After leaving Twyford and walking along a road (pavement) for a while, there comes the start of an absolutely gorgeous series of woodland, field and lane which emerges in due course at Waltham St Lawrence. Here there is an excellent pub serving food. Slow Ways don’t get better than this!

Leaving Waltham St Lawrence the route now heads to White Waltham. It passes through a landscaped estate at Shottesbrook, where sheep safely graze. At White Waltham you arrive at the cricket ground; there is a pub here, the Beehive.

Maidenhead outskirts are still some way to go but I could feel they were on the way as the road gets busier. More fields and Lillibrook Manor (already discussed).

The rest of the route is through Maidenhead suburbs, past the railway station, to the meeting point in the centre of town. I found the walk here was direct and purposeful, with a quiet underpass dealing with the A404(M) which barges through on it’s way to High Wycombe.

All in all I found this to be an excellent Slow Way with good paths, refreshments and interesting places to see.
There are some stiles and kissing gates.

I found this route enjoyable and relatively easy to follow. It manages to avoid walking near busy roads and a railway line between Twyford to Maidenhead. As already mentioned by others, many parts of this route can be muddy and I could just about manage to follow it without wading through pools of water after nearly two weeks of no rain. The only spot where I was misled was close to Maidenhead at Lillibrooke Manor where I entered a graveled road via a wide gate only to find 50m down the road that there is no exit and I had to climb a fence to get to the stile next to it.

The general route is a good one but it is poorly drawn. At one point I mistakenly wandered into private grounds because the route omitted highlighting a side-path that skirted private grounds (in White Waltham).

This is a good route and was almost exactly 10 miles. The earliest you pass a pub is just over 6 miles (if walking from Maidenhead to Twyford direction) at Waltham St. Lawrence. After this the route can be very muddy if there has been recent rainfall. The route is flat but varied, walking through town footpaths, fields and woods.
