Help connect Edgware

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 Edgware’s Slow Ways.

Mostly it is well drawn, but as the previous reviewers also note there is a small error between Sheepcote Road and Northwick Park Road at Harrow....

We follow more residential pavements then head into Watling Park, following the main paved path to its south end. We pass Burnt Oak station and turn left to find Silk Stream Park, where we follow another wide paved path across Montrose Avenue and through Montrose Playing Fields, then head through the tall buildings to Colindale station....

No major problems, but the path from Allum Lane to Barnet Lane was a bit wet and muddy in places, as was the unsurfaced path into Edgwarebury Park. We turn right into Edgwarebury Lane and follow it over the M1 into a residential estate, where we head right into Edgwarebury Park on an unsurfaced and muddy path....

There are toilets at Broadwalk Centre shopping mall in Edgware, and cafes and a petrol station on route, with a chip shop at Salcombe Gardens. I checked the path that links Page Street to Pursley Road that another reviewer mentioned and it's a really good alternative to joining Pursley Road from the roundabouts at the end of Bunns Lane. I assume the mapped route favours accessibility, but I think the rail path is a really good alternative route for those who want it....

The walk into Canons Park was my favourite section of the walk. But then I entered Stanmore Country Park and I was able to follow "a" way across to the exit, but the plotting hadn't left me in no doubt that I was following the right route. I get the impression that the ground of at least part of the route across the Country Park is always saturated....

1 Crossing Silkstream Park, the route takes you away from the main path and takes you around the outskirts of the park, eventually delivering you to a set of steps up to a section of the road away from the pedestrian crossing. Had it followed the main route it would have passed the cafe and then delivered you by ramp to the pedestrian crossing....

I've remade the route as Boredg Two, with the road crossing corrected, and recommend that. Other than that this is a good direct route into/out of London taking advantage of parkland and surprisingly rural green belt lanes....

After the woods the route goes downhill along Edgwarebury Lane all the way to Edgwarebury Park. Eventually I came to the outskirts of Edgware and the route turned into Edgwarebury Park After the park comes the A41 Watford Bypass, crossed by a bridge (steps or a long ramp), with this route option there is only a short walk along the main road before turning into residential streets, and eventually coming to Edgware station....

At Chandos rec the route line goes around the outside but it is possible to walk inside the grounds which makes for a greener walk. All surfaces paved/asphalt, no steps....
