Slow Ways is a project to create a network of walking routes 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 to walk beteen 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. This incredible effort has led to the creation of 7,500 routes that collectively stretch for over 68,350 miles.
While there are thousands of miles of paths linking places across the country, there isn't a comprehensive network designed to help people walk off-road between all towns and cities. That’s what the Slow Ways project aims to do. Click the above title for details of how to be involved.
