Slow Ways linking Bures and Colchester, Hadleigh, Halstead, Sudbury

England / Suffolk / Bures

Help connect Bures

Many Slow Ways have several route options. Some will be better than others, or good for different reasons.

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.

Give a hike and help get a for every one of Bures’s Slow Ways.
