Help connect Dagenham

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 Dagenham’s Slow Ways.

Walk this route

Back out of the Park and along a quiet road past a visitors centre (café) and along a track to Hook Hall Farm. Then Rush Green Road, a busy road to cross with crossing points, the lights seem to take ages. A suburban road takes you to Queen's Hospital grounds where the bridle path is sign posted....

Walk this route

This route is good and well mapped except for two parts. One where it turns through a hedge and fences over private land. Two where walking alongside a busy road can be avoided....

After the roundabout there is pavement walking right beside a very busy road, not nice. Apart from a section of road walking, this was a very pleasant walk, very open, with good views....

I was actually looking for a new RomSou route, or just a small adjustment to RomSou 1 needed because of the problem going through Little Belhus Country Park in Ockendon....

Walk this route

This route was designed to remove some of the busy A road walking that blights NorDag 1. It does that and adds some more Thames Path and pleasant greenspaces, but the roads are still fairly noticeable....

Walk this route

Don't walk this route unless you just love walking beside huge roads with fast traffic and lots of air pollution. Walked in winter 22/23 from North Woolwich to near Greatfield Park then abandoned it, I'd already had enough big roads, just couldn't face the long stretch on the pavement of the multi lane A13....

Dagenham—South Ockendon

Daisy C added Dagsou two, a new walk from Dagenham to South Ockendon

Walk this route

This is effectively the only green part of this route, the remainder being all side streets and busy main roads and currently there is no sensible alternative....

Walk this route

Highly accurate and a nice walk on the elevated part of the track through Beam Parklands to begin. A lot of roads but they were quiet and all had footpaths. On the approach to Sandy Lane you can stay on the footpath instead of cutting through the field as the map suggests....

Cuts through the backstreets and parks with good accessibility...

Once you’re out of Romford town centre the route tries to keep you off the main roads for the majority of the way up to the park, walking through well kept residential streets. This has lots of flat open grass, an outdoor gym and two play areas (one either side of the park). It's a good place to let the dog off the lead for a run or let the children play in the play areas)....
