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.

  1. Complete the survey training.

Mostly a good route, but a couple of errors that need correcting.

First, the route through Walton Hall Park has a massive diversion around the bowling greens and along the path that runs adjacent to the housing estate; this is unnecessary, and I recommend just going straight along the main path through the park.

Secondly, the exit from the canal onto the bridge at Spencer's Lane isn't as straightforward as the map claims.

These small quibbles have been corrected on WALKIR Four; route Two offers a slightly amended ending.

A good walk but...several small mapping errors, any one of which would not warrant a new route, but all together make navigation difficult.
More accurate Walkir2 coming soon.

    Oh, more routes added between my walking Walkir 1 and having time to add the corrected route. Therefore the accurate updated Walkir 1 route I walked on 9/12/22 will be Walkir 4.
