Our goal is for each Slow Way to have at least one route that is verified and surveyed. To be verified – and get its snail badge – a route needs at least three positive reviews.

Pleasant walk from Epsom Town Centre to Ashtead alongside the railway with plenty of green sections especially through Ashtead Park....
I started this walk at Ashtead Park after having walked from Epsom....

Route: This route mainly tracks via Epsom Common and Ashtead Park, which are a pleasure to walk through. There is a section on the walk after Ashtead Park where there is a need to walk along a road with no pavement, however the road is very quiet and the area is picturesque....
I did this Slow Way as part of a big Waylist that started in Zone 2 of London, and I thought this was one of the nicest sections I tried within the M25....
Given that this is a route connecting two more urban areas, I am rating it with 5 stars to indicate that it does a good job of providing a quiet, straightforward route. I liked that it takes you through pedestrian corridors in neighbourhoods, and there is a nice stretch before you reach the bridge that crosses the motorway. I don't know if there is a better, more direct alternative route, but doing this for the first time, it was quite pleasant....
Nice route - mostly quiet, barring a short stretch parallel to the motorway. Surface is generally good, though a bit soft/muddy in places. One path on the way into Headley easy to miss without a map, but otherwise well signposted and clear....
Straightforward route between Ashtead and Leatherhead, with a mixture of roughly 50/50 well-surfaced footpaths and pavements. One pedestrian bridge over the main road, with both ramp and stairs, so probably wheelchair-accessible. Not very exciting, but better than following the main road all the way....
The only downside of this route, in my opinion, is the stretch of path which runs parallel to the M25, which is very noisy....
A slow way linking Leatherhead to Ashtead was never going to be that exciting or scenic, with the possible exception of one going via Ashtead Common, though admittedly this would have been far too indirect. The best we could have hoped for was one which avoided major roads and was accessible for disabled users, and thankfully, this one is. A safe and functional, if unspectacular route going through quiet residential areas with several schools along the way....
I would not walk this route as it has about 500m of walking on the verge of the B280 Fairoak Lane. This road is often busy and is 60mph alongside the verge....
