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.

Help people know more about this route by volunteering to submit a survey.

I walked the route from Whitstable to Canterbury. Overall, I really enjoyed the route; it was varied, gorgeous, interesting, and generally navigable and easy to follow. The route generally, but not exclusively, follows the cycleway, so much of the route has really good ground conditions (paved or compacted gravel and wide paths).

A few points:
- Around Thurston Park the route has you go in behind a stretch of homes, but the footpath was totally littered with debris or overgrown vegetation. It makes more sense to just get on the cycleway right after Old Bridge Road rather than join it south of All Saints Close.
- You might be able to avoid some mud by staying on the Crab and Winkle Way instead of taking the deviation from it at Amery Court Farm.
- I didn't take the diversion into Blean and intead just stayed straight on the Crab and Winkle Way.
- The route around the University of Kent is a bit weird, ducking around uni buildings, but the path is always there and always public. I actually liked it as a way to keep the approach into Canterbury as green as possible for as long as possible!

No major complaints here: the route was pleasant, beautiful, and a great connection between Whitstable and Canterbury!.

A pleasant and easy to follow route. Sharing much of its length with the National Cycling Route 1.
