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.

Walked Northward Sunderland Centre to East Boldon and reported in that context.
A good route making use of the riverside path and interesting/off-road routes as far as possible through otherwise urban areas.
No problems following the GPX route but at 380594 after crossing the road the original line of the path (Photo 1) is closed off and it is necessary to take the path a few meters to the right (East) through the gate (Photo 2). This leads to a gateway to the left where you should exit the quarry area to rejoin the GPX route. Turn right out of the gate and follow the quarry boundary to the right of the grassy area and continue through a gate on your right when you reach it.
A very minor suggestion is that at 378598 it easier to turn left and then right on the short public tracks than to follow the right of way to the hard left corner.
A good alternative to the given route at 388589 is to continue northward along the road and branch off at 387592 to follow the right of way until you reach the track at 382601 and then turn West to rejoin the original route at 377599– or make use of some of the many paths within Fulwell Quarry.

    Not sure how the stars should be used. Gave it three leaving room for say, a fantastic route through the Dales but if I ranked it in terms of how else could you get from Sunderland to East Boldon? it would get 4 or even more. What is the right way to rank them?
