Connect Eye with Slow Ways

Slow Ways linking Eye and Diss, Framlingham, Harleston, Stanton (Bury St Edmunds), Stowmarket, Stradbroke

England / Suffolk / Eye

Help connect Eye

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 Eye’s Slow Ways.
