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.

Starting following the Walsall Road, I had wondered whether it would have been better to follow a more direct line via the residential streets and then industrial estate to meet up with A462 but stuck with the plan. What you lose in time and possibly gain in traffic you also gain plenty of food options from McDonalds to jerk chicken, from old style pubs to indian sweet shops. One of the advantages as well, of following the main road is the ease with which to navigate. Leaving the A462 you soon find yourself crossing a housing estate via various greens and then footpaths via alleyways which eventually bring you out near a cemetery. After crossing Bentley Lane, the route enters Rough Wood Country Park. There is a short walk along a dirt track to bring you to the Wyrley and Essington Canal, the towpath of which takes you under the M6 and delivers you to the western edge of Bloxwich. There is a bit of pavement to follow along a lane and then a short walk past industrial units before you come to an unusual looking railway bridge to take you into Bloxwich. It's not far to the meeting place from there. This Slow Way is certainly safe and has stops and shops by the bucketful even over 7km. It has long offroad sections and is easy to follow. The only thing I would question is whether it could have been more direct.
