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.

  1. Complete the survey training.

Before walking from Wrexham to Chester, I looked on Google Maps Street View and decided there was no way I was going to walk across the A483 by the railway crossing at OS Grid Ref: SJ 33972 54202. It is a busy dual carriageway with a 70mph speed limit.

Largely good, other than the northernmost section leaving Chester.

Most importantly, I would urge using Wrexham Road with its safe, wide pavements instead of deviating via Rake Lane which has fast moving traffic and no footway making it a much less safe and accessible walk.

I have walked Rake Lane several times but avoid doing so now. The frequency and speed of traffic makes it an uncomfortable walk. In the time taken to walk the full length of the road, it is normal to experience several close passes by fast-moving vehicles unless you repeatedly retreat to the verge.

A keyhole bridge when exiting at Eccleston adds additional difficulty, as it features poor sightlines and no footway.

The route also currently makes an impossible crossing of the A55 where no bridge exists.

    Just realised that the path cannot be completed. The route crosses the A483 and railway line west of Gresford - but the paths here do not connect as they are severed by the road.
