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 attempted to walk this route from Blackburn, but I'm afraid it failed badly, right from the start. Firstly, the footpath between the railway and the carpark was enclosed and full of litter. The real killer though, is that there is absolutely no access from the road to the canal towpath below.
Also, at the Wheelton end of the route, the footpath leaving the canal is currently closed due to a big hole in the path where I think it has collapsed.
