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 always love it when a Slow Way produces a surprise. There's no denying that this a direct no-nonsense kind of a walk between the centre of West Bromwich and one of its suburbs but it includes a section through Charlemont Cemetery which I had never visited before. The first section is along the pavement of West Bromwich High Street, which is a bit run down, but has some interesting independent shops. The next section is through residential streets and despite some slow turns in the navigation, it is remarkably easy to follow. There's a short section of track before getting to Hateley Heath, where you join the main road. At the top of the road you access the cemetery, a peaceful and well maintained section of the walk. A turn to the right delivers you on the busy main road to the meeting place at Stone Cross. Short, direct, safe, relaxed, an interesting and beautiful section in the cemetery and stops and shops throughout. An excellent Slow Way!.
