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.

We walked this route starting in Henley, and found it enjoyable and - if paying attention to the map - relatively easy to follow. As the previous reviewer noted, parts of the route are very overgrown; I should have paid more attention to this comment when deciding to wear shorts, as there was a proliferation of nettles and brambles that I would rather have not had in direct contact with my legs!
We lunched at The Warwickshire Lad in Wood End, which was directly on the route and served good food and beer.
It’s a route we would happily walk again.

A very nice journey with lots of changes in scenery throughout, from forests to fields, to pleasant towns. The route indicate in Little Clowes Wood is not accurate and requires some deviation to navigate through. Also there are some styles and potentially muddy section, why may put some people off.
