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.

Route more or less correctly mapped, I would just make a couple of suggestions at each end. On Chewin1 the route uses a path between Welland Lodge Road and Broad Acre Road. The route heads to a gap between houses in Southam, potentially there may be refreshments at Southam de la Bere Hotel, just off route, but it is very posh. From Southam the route uses bits of old road and footways, then crosses the B4632 (take care here - fast traffic) to head steeply up Ashleigh Lane. At Postlip Mill a new path takes the route above the noisy industrial area (CheWin1 not correctly mapped here)....

5hrs including a 30min stop at The Mount Inn, in Stanton for refreshments. A few steep inclines to deal with around Hailes & Buckland but nothing too difficult....
Can't quite give it a full five stars as last couple of miles into Winchcombe is on a road (OK, a country road with grass in the centre!) and Winchcombe itself is scarred by lanes of parked cars (imagine what it would look like car-free--see accompanying pics)....

Both trails are regularly painted by the Cotswold Voluntary Wardens....
Route follows Windrush Way from Winchcombe to Lower Slaughter before following Heart of England Trail. Route is popular and well marked....
An enjoyable route for the experienced walker, better undertaken in dry conditions because it combines lowland pasture beside a stream, ploughed fields and rutted/muddy hill tracks. There are stiles and kissing gates to negotiate. Signage usually good but care needed to avoid bull in field at Great Washbourne and when crossing two busy roads....
