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 did this as part of a circular route from Kingsbury via Brent Cross, Kilburn and Wembley, returning to Kingsbury. Public transport, cafes and shops are easily available. I downloaded the Slow Way GPX files to my OS app which worked very well. The route is well documented.

I have lived in London for many years and am still surprised to discover different connections between neighbourhoods - this is one such.

Freyent Park was soaking wet underfoot in late March. There are no other access issues.

I walked from Wembley to Kingsbury, the day after a lot of rain had fallen.

Most of this walk is through residential streets on good pavements. There's a small manicured park near Wembley.

However the exception is Fryent Country Park, a large open space with woodland and open grassland, on a hill near Kingsbury. It is very easy to go wrong here unless you are tracking your location on a map - be warned!

Some of the paths in Fryent Park were slippery and muddy, and because it's routed along the bottom of the hill parallel to the railway the route was very soggy. I notice that Wemkin One routes slightly more up hill, which may be a better way when it's wet underfoot.

Waterproof boots with good soles, and a walking stick for balance, would come in useful here, and it's easy to forget when urban walking!

Reasonable direct with some pleasant open spaces. No steps, but very soft ground in Fryent Park.

This is Wemkin one, but with better navigation in the Fryent Country Park. I walked this from Wembley to Kingsbury. After a short stretch along the busy Wembley Road, the route takes you through the King Edward VII Park. The view at the start is lovely. Further down you pass by some playing fields, with a basketball court (used for cricket?!). Wembley's arch is never far away though as you come out of the park and walk through Preston Road and into the Fryent Country Park, where the route follows the Capital Ring for a bit. Navigating the paths and ponds was a little tricky, but this new route should make that easier. It finishes at Kingsbury station.
