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.

The first reviewer has picked up two important points. But I like aspects of this route and would still recommend it with some minor alterations. I walked from Uxbridge to Hayes.
This is a quiet road out of Uxbridge. There is a better main footpath through the university campus if you wish to go that way, which you will easily spot as you continue along Cleveland road. Or follow the suggested alternative.
Later at the other issues, when you get to the large roundabout as the West Drayton road joins the stockley road go into the Hale Field Park entrance on the corner. (This is a busy roundabout).
From the park entrance follow the gravel path and take the first right at the path roundabout, head up and over the slight hill, through the kissing gate across the lane and up the narrow path directly opposite which heads up to the right through the trees (you can also follow the lane to the right). This takes you to the edge of Stockley Park golf course. Then follow the wide gravel path that goes up and over the ridge in front of you and then down the other side and takes you to the club house. I follow the path around the left hand side of the buildings (keeping them to your right). Head down the tree lined path but take the narrow path on the left or as I did, I just continued south (into the landscaped business park – buses A10, U5, 350) parallel to Roundwood Avenue and then left along Furzeground Way until taking the right down a gravel path (signposted London Loop) which takes you to the Grand Union Canal through a kissing gate.

Once on the canal tow path you head left towards Hayes it is a busy walking and cycling route but is peaceful. This part is a well maintained wide path. But the final section into Hayes narrows as it becomes overgrown. Once you have passed under Station Road there is a short stair up to Western View and from here you can get onto Station Road and head into the centre of Hayes.

I followed this route from Uxbridge to Hayes and there's 2 issues to correct with this route (I will rewalk and upload the GPS for these alterations soon):

1: route goes through a gate into the grounds of Brunel University and this gate is only open 7am - 7pm weekedays, closed at weekends. Instead of that I suggest route should continue down Cleveland Road, past Brunel University, then left onto a well signposted footpath (U68) that is opposite Station Road. This is a wide dirt track, doesnt add any time to the route, it's always open and is a small part of the Celandine Route.

2: approaching Stockley Park business park on the A408, this route indicates a left turn but this seems to be through a very narrow gate, seriously overgrown and not passable safely. Instead of that I followed the A408 into Stockley Park but that becomes quite confusing to find the way to the London Loop. Looking at the map I see you could turn left on A408 into Hale Field Park (which is well signposted) and join the London Loop from here.

Aside from those changes, the route is suburban (passing houses, shops, university, hospital etc) and follows paths alongside roads and then the Grand Union canal towpath. The paths are, unfortunately, often narrow and often uneven; and there is a set of steps to get from the canal up to Hayes highstreet. On leaving Uxbridge it might help to note that you are aiming for Whitehall Road which is the main road to/from Brunel University (lack of road names on OS Maps can make this feel more confusing than it is).
