Slow Ways

Regular price £20.00

VAT included. FREE Shipping to the UK, or calculated at checkout.

Product under development. Launching soon. 

Support Slow Ways CIC with an original, first edition cyanotype print of the walking routes for your wall.

Each one of these prints is coated by hand and exposed in sunlight before being developed and dried. Powered by the sun! Your print will be unique. We are taking pre-orders to allow us the flexibility to print on clear, sunny days (hopefully there will be a few). Orders will start shipping from mid-May. 

Urban Good has collaborated with Daniel Heath again to create something special and affordable to support the amazing work being done by Slow Ways CIC.

All profits are being donated to Slow Ways CIC to help them inspire and support the amazing community of people making and testing Slow Ways.

We have been prototyping and testing the artwork, exposure timings, and paper stock. We will keep updating the photos here as we begin production. The final prints will be on:

Canson Montval 300gsm, cold-pressed, acid-free.

Small: 290 × 180 mm
Large: 420 × 250 mm

Each print will have an approximate 15mm border, so you can mount as you wish.
We work with FRMD if you want to enquire about getting your print framed prior to shipping. We recommend float mount in an oak, box frame. Please enquire with them for a quote and enter their address in the shipping field.

Posted flat in a secure envelope, folded in acid-free tissue. 

Cyanotype is an archival technique. The highest quality chemicals and paper stock help guarantee the longevity of the print.

About Slow Ways

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

Using existing paths, ways, trails, and roads, people will be able to use Slow Ways routes to walk or wheel between neighbouring settlements or combine routes for longer-distance journeys.

During lockdown in 2020, 700 volunteers from across the country created a first draft of the Slow Ways network - more than 7,000 routes collectively stretching for over 100,000km - creating a unique and compelling Slow Ways map in the process.

The Slow Ways distinctive geometric network makes it easy for people to see, imagine, plan, navigate and share journeys. This is an important, positive and timely initiative. Walking can improve health and wellbeing, help tackle the climate and ecological emergencies, save people money, improve our environment and bring joy to people's lives.

Because of the scale of support for the idea of Slow Ways, Slow Ways CIC was formed in 2020. The purpose of this not-for-profit community interest company is to inspire and support people to make the most of Slow Ways.
