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 this in the reverse direction (note), from Rayleigh to Wickford, and overall this is a nice walk, although there a few points to take note of:
After crossing the A130,doublegate Lane is a concreted path leading to Doublegate Farm. Do not enter the fam but turn left just after the stream. The entrance to the path is very overgrown and hidden, but it is next to the stream.
When you cross the railway bridge at Dollymans Farm, the path continues on the right immediately when the bridge finishes, and is very difficult to find.
When you cross the entrance to Wick Country Park you should be able to continue along the field to the roundabout at Salcott Cres, but this path has been deliberately sabotaged : The entrance to the path is completely overgrown with hawthorn, and just inside there is a manmade mound of earth blocking what was the path. You will need to take the exit out of the park and walk parallel to the path along Tresco Road.
I did manage to jump across a ditch and get back onto the path for a while, and found the remains of a 'Public Footpath' sign which had been uprooted. Also at Salcott Cres. the exit which still has the bridge across the ditch was again impassable due to being overgrown with hawthorn - clearly deliberate.
