A route I planned to walk but didn't, handing over to others to test it. They report it is good enough to join the network so here it is. My thanks to Slow Way explorers

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.

There are plenty of shops and cafes in Conisborough if you need them before you get started. The route starts in the centre of town and soon passes the castle (impressive ruins, managed by English Heritage).

It then passes through some pretty woodland leading to the ex-colliery town of New Edlington. On Edlington Lane (next to the Post Office) you’ll find the small Yorkshire Main colliery memorial garden, which is well worth a brief visit with its tribute to the 144 men who lost their lives in the mine between 1910 and 1975.

Leaving the built up area, there is more woodland before joining a rough track, rather blighted with fly tipping. From here you are on the road for a bit in order to get under the M18. Although there is no pavement, the road is wide, not that busy and has verges both sides so felt safe enough.

A turning takes you up - the only real hill on the walk - the quiet road to the pretty village of Wadworth with its Grade 1 listed manor house. The cricket pitch makes a good spot for a break.

There’s an easy short cut through the churchyard, rather than following the official Slow Ways route down the High Street. Both take you to the end point where there is a shop and pub. Even better is the butchers and café (including take out) just down Carr Lane. Excellent pork pies!

Overall a good start and a good finish, but less interesting in the middle.

Fuller review and photos posted under Pete. In summary a good section at the start and a lovely village at the end, but less interesting in the middle.

This was a really nice route with some really enjoyable walking in woods and country. New Edlington is right in the middle and you can stop there for refreshments if needs be. Lots of it is off road with a mix of path quality. On one section around the M18/A1(M) junction you have to walk along the road which passes under the motorway bridge, there is always a verge to use on the side and it was a quiet road at the time of passing though but the occasional car whistled past. A nice green in Wadworth to enjoy a packed lunch afterwards too.
