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.

The route then followed quite a busy section of road walking from Stretton to Clipsham, mostly with sufficient road verges to avoid traffic. On the far side the route continued along farm tracks until reaching the hamlet of Pickworth, before a long section also along farm tracks plus a short section of quiet road until Great Casterton. Here the route left the Rutland Round path, and continued along the road through the outskirts of Stamford before reaching the town centre, crossing the Meadows over the river Wellend, and finally to the railway station....
There was a relatively sharp climb up the hill outside of Harlaxton and then the route joined a road for a stretch until Home Dairy Farm. There was a pleasant walk through a valley to Hungerton followed by another fairly long but much quieter section of road walking, before the route joined the Viking Way along The Drift. A section of field tracks took me to Skillington, before another slightly busy section of road walking (another 10 cars passed on this stretch)....
This review just covers the route from Colsterworth roundabout to Honeypot lane....
Although I walked Colbou 4 the common portion presents the same issue: that of walking on the A151 with limited safe harbour. Total distance without pavement is about 0.6km....
