Help connect East Ham

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 East Ham’s Slow Ways.

Like any possible route connecting East Ham and Barking this has to deal with a few big roads including crossing the North Circular so it is not the quietest but it is short and is has a small segment where it crosses the River Roding. It might be possible to re-route this and extend it slightly with more of a walk along the Roding to make a nicer walk. To cross the North Circular you take a bridge with sloping steps going up either side, the East Ham side is steeper....
