I can’t add much to the comments that the previous reviewers have made, other than to endorse their views that this is probably the best way to travel between Wythall and Birmingham....

We walked this route starting in Henley, and found it enjoyable and - if paying attention to the map - relatively easy to follow. As the previous reviewer noted, parts of the route are very overgrown; I should have paid more attention to this comment when deciding to wear shorts, as there was a proliferation of nettles and brambles that I would rather have not had in direct contact with my legs! We lunched at The Warwickshire Lad in Wood End, which was directly on the route and served good food and beer....

A very nice journey with lots of changes in scenery throughout, from forests to fields, to pleasant towns. The route indicate in Little Clowes Wood is not accurate and requires some deviation to navigate through. Also there are some styles and potentially muddy section, why may put some people off....

It traverses some really interesting and vibrant neighbourhoods in Birmingham including Kings Heath, Moseley and Balsall Heath! Lots of places to stop along the way (from parks to cafes) making it easy to break up the walk....

The path then rolls with the hills it passes through, there is a crossing of Rowney Green Lane which needs care, but it was an easy crossing. The route uphill from there was very easy to follow and a slight worry about how I was going to get through a herd of cows asleep in front of a gate was allayed when I realised that the Slow Way actually follows the diverted route to the right of a pond away from the cows! At the top of the hill, having passed a sign telling me I was between Alvechurch and Wythall (phew!) I crossed Watery Lane and experienced my first bit of magic. The last section follows the pavement of Middle Lane and then Station Road. Crossing by where Station Road emerges was very tricky and might seem impossible at rush hour....

I noted some offroad options along the way but discounted them: The Stratford on Avon Canal takes you west-east when you want to be going north-south and neither Cocks Moor Woods or Billesley Common can be followed through to the other side. I'd considered if there might be a walk via Cannon Hill Park which drops into Kings Heath further down but that added a couple of km to the journey and it was a compromise for another version of this route....

There were one or two points where the footpath could get overgrown in summer and muddy in wet weather but I don’t think this will present too much of an issue with the correct clothing and footwear....
