Slow Ways

Slow Ways is an initiative to create a national network of walking routes connecting all of Great Britain’s towns and cities as well as thousands of villages.

Using existing paths, ways, trails and roads, people can use Slow Ways routes to walk or wheel between neighbouring settlements, and combine them to create longer distance trips. It’s designed to make it easier for people to imagine, plan and go on walking journeys.

There are currently over 7,000 Slow Ways stretching for over 100,000km. This network of routes was created by 700 volunteers during the Spring 2020 lockdown, creating a unique Slow Ways map in the process.

There’s an open invitation to u3a members, groups and regional networks to explore the Slow Ways website and choose one or more routes to walk and check. As well as walking groups, any u3a group and member is welcome to use Slow Ways to connect across a range of projects and with each other. For more details see the Slow Ways u3a web page.
