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.

Lovely route, especially on a nice and sunny day! There is a wide footpath and also cycle path, only issue I found really is lack of toilets along the route as it's probably a mile from the Dome until the next public toilets which is unfortunate, otherwise a great route for everybody :)...

Only negative comments are around tree roots narrowing the pavement (which are not significantly obstructive and there are other options, such as crossing the road) and the end of the route which takes you across the green (not recommended as barrier blocks exit to green at the far side). Apart from that this is probably about as easy as they come!...

Botolph's Church (beautiful Grade 1 listed church) in Steyning, they have a lovely cafe outside of it (great tea and cake)....

Worth going a little further to see the quirky houseboats along the river Adur adjacent to sea at Shoreham!...

A safer option to avoid a very dangerous A283 crossing near Bramber (photo 1) is to take the western riverside footpath (marked with a red arrow on photo 2), then pass under the A283 before turning left and rejoining the Downs Link (when travelling north)...

Only concern was, just outside of Steyning, you have to cross the Steyning Bypass (A283) and there were a broken tree just before the crossing that you have to duck below (unfortunately I didn't take a picture of this)...

The old Shoreham to Horsham railway, was resurfaced the other year leaving a gravely path for bikes and walkers. It joins the South Down Way for a small bit, there is a water tap just off the path near the road as you cross the river, likewise there is normally a 'horse box' serving coffee in the layby. It leaves the old railway at Bramber (actually the old railway turns into a main road) but there are good pavements into Steyning...

This path mainly follows the Downslink along the Adur Valley. However the road noise is pretty constant as it follows the same line through the valley as the busy A283, then goes beneath the A27....

The route is very near to a busy road for about 15-20 minutes between the East side of Worthing and Lancing....

Follow this south and cross the A283 and then the Downs Link (which the route follows) moves away from the side of the road and you can escape the noise of the road....

All of the route is on concrete in a residential area, and so is accessible in principle but the pavement on one road, i think Park Road, was not suitable for chair users or scooters. The trees planted took up most of the pavement and routes were coming up through making what pavement there was very uneven. Route goes past/near several schools so busy at peak school times....

I would recommend taking the footpath on to the beach though at the Shoreham end, it is a special surface which is wheel friendly with passing points which i hope you can see from my photos...

This is a lovely walk mainly on level ground as you leave Steyning you go downhill and access the riverbank which you can then follow all the way to Shoreham by Sea. There is lots to see on the river from swans to moorhens and close to Shoreham you can see Cormorants on the bridge pilings....
