In the News
You may have seen Slow Ways featured on both BBC News and ITV News on October 16th? “Slow Ways…seeks to elevate the position of walking in our national conversation, to be seen not just as a worthy, healthy hobby but part of our national transport infrastructure”.
Slow Ways in a snail shell
Slow Ways is a project to create a network of walking routes and footpaths that connect all of Great Britain’s towns and cities as well as thousands of villages.
Using existing footpaths, people will be able to use the Slow Ways routes to walk between neighbouring settlements or combine routes for long distance journeys.
During lockdown 700 volunteers from across the country collaborated to produce a first draft of the Slow Ways network, creating a stunning Slow Ways map in the process. This incredible effort has led to the creation of 7,500 routes that collectively stretch for over 110,000km.
While COVID-19 has forced millions of us to stay at home and indoors, that hasn’t stopped us from being collaborative, imaginative, creative and productive.
We are currently working on building a website that will host all of the Slow Ways routes information and hope to launch that later this year.
All of the routes information that we collate will always be free to browse, search, view, share, download and enjoy.

Slow Ways Group
Wouldn’t it be nice if we had a Slow Ways Group in Stinchcombe. And be in at the start of the project in January 2021.
