When using modification as in
漫漫地走 is the verb modified always doubled? Or is this just coincidental that most times this is so?
Also I'm not sure I'm clear if there is a difference of meaning between this and 走得慢
Can anyone point me in the right direction?

In 慢慢地走，慢慢 is "adverbial modifier", we can use it as a suggestion：别着急，我们慢慢（地）走吧。Do not worry, let's walk slowly.
In 走得慢, 慢 is "complement", we can say: 他走得慢，我们等他吧。He walked slowly, let's wait for him.
