We are working to build-up a picture of what routes look like. To do that we are asking volunteers to survey routes so that we can communicate features, obstacles and challenges that may make a route desirable or not.

Slow Ways surveyors are asked to complete some basic online training, but they are not vetted. If you are dependent on the survey information being correct in order to complete a route, we recommend that you think critically about the information provided. You may also wish to wait until more than one survey has been completed.

Help people know more about this route by volunteering to submit a survey.

This is a lovely route comprised of the Leeds-Liverpool canal towpath and the Pennine Way. The walk starts in the centre of Barnoldswick. After a short walk out of the town, the canal is reached and first half of the walk follows the towpath. This is generally in a good condition and level, meaning it is suitable for wheelchairs and buggys. After about 3.5 miles on the towpath, you pass under the A59. The bridge here is worth a view as it has an unusual double arch. Please note that the OS map indicates that there is a pub close by, but at the time of this review, this was unfortunately closed. However, after reaching the lane, there is however a tearoom as short distance to the left.
After a few hundred yards on a quiet lane, follow the Pennine Way as signposted on the right. From here, the well signposted route gently undulates across farmland, hence will be muddy when wet. There are views of the canal to the left and the Yorkshire Dales ahead.
Eventually, Gargrave comes into sight and after crossing the railway line, take the path to the right into the village, which has accommodation, pubs, tearoom, curry house, fish and chip shop, and a Co-op.
