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 pleasant urban walk but I'm not sure it follows the slow ways brief. In essence this route is a direct route that includes 3 diversions that allow the walker to follow green corridors that are OK but not necessarily worth the extra distance. I think that the diversions would also be difficult for wheels.

The first section is mostly through the residential outskirts of Cottingham. Soon after you pass the Snuff Mill, I kid you not :), the path becomes a track which is uneven and unsurfaced. This route was muddy when walked and although I avoided the worst of it wheeled users would find it difficult to do so. You then encounter a foot crossing of the Hull to Scarborough railway line. This leads you to an unmade road that had a couple of muddy spots that even I couldn't avoid.

You are now on Bricknell Ave [ ///slowly.jelly.bind ] and wheel users have the opportunity to get here using road side footpaths if they follow Thwaite St at [ ///unique.dices.vibe ].

After following Bricknell Ave for a while you turn right and walk through a housing estate [ ///happy.yappy.eager ]. This leads to a footpath that follows the railway. The first part of this path is surfaced but that gives way to an unsurfaced route that was very muddy, when walked. I think the muddy section would be quite unpleasant for anyone using wheels.

You now follow a drain on an unsurfaced path until you reach residential streets that lead you to [/// ]. Wheel users have the opportunity to get here using road side footpaths if they follow Bricknell Ave, and Chanterlands Ave.

You follow Chanterlands Ave until you reach the Cemetery. The section through the cemetery includes reasonable and unmade footpaths but they were dry and easily passable even following wet weather. The path through the cemetery is worth a visit as it is very atmospheric, especially the Quaker burial ground (the last section).

Once again wheel users can continue on Chanterlands Ave and then follow Spring Bank West.

You follow Spring Bank for a while and then head through a mixture of residential and business areas until arriving on Ferensway. I have to say that I didn’t feel entirely comfortable in this area and on reflection I would suggest continuing on Spring Bank until it meets Ferensway.
