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.

Walked from Worcester to Droitwich

I recommend this route as part of Slow Ways as a starting route. But it's I think it can be improved.

This route is not suitable for wheelchairs as it uses a footbridge to cross a rail line in Fernhill Heath to the north of Worcester. There are also styles and rough tracks.

I would suggest it to others that are prepared to use the GPX track as a rough guide only.

It is reasonably safe and direct. However there is a few sections of the track that are on road without pavements. 250 meters of this heads west on Hindlip Lane, it's a busy narrow road with cars that pass close by. Some people will be uncomfortable with this.

There is a field that this route crosses that starts with a style that has a large unavoidable puddle, it had been raining before my walk. Water nearly came over my boots that are about 15cm tall. The field can be avoided by continuing on the road.

The the Droitwich half of the route isn't well drawn. It's not obvious which side of the canal should be used at some points.

I will attempt to upload a more tidy version of this route and upload to Slow Ways as a slightly better alternative.

    Having walked this today (06/05/21) I totally agree with D's comments. I'll give my review to the improved Wordro two instead.

This is a much improved version of Wordro one which in my opinion should now be quietly retired.
It includes the short but necessary deviation along Hindlip Lane to access the underpass under the A449 (good Monarch's Way signing here).
I agree that the field crossing off Kennels Lane starts off in a stream and I suspect is little used because of that - simply continuing along the lane is wht most people will end up doing.
Good work improving the routing at the Droitwich end which was poorly done on Wordro one.
