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.

  1. Complete the survey training.

Can't give no stars - you can't recross the river once you are over the other side of the Trent out of Gainsborough. You can walk parts of the river bank from Gainsborough to Marton on the eastern side but not as one continuous route.

    Hi Jacqueline! Did you try to walk this route before reviewing it? It looks as though the river crossing at Torksey Viaduct is open for walkers and cyclists, here's a link

    It looks to me like the route is viable, if you or someone else wants to have another go.

    The Torksey viaduct is perfectly usable, and well maintained.

    Having used it yesterday on another route, I can confirm that there is no access issue with the Torksey viaduct, which has been open to walkers since 2015, so this access flag is incorrect and should be removed! It is accessed using steps, but that is a minor issue. I could provide pictures.

    I will eventually get round to walking this one, but your main reason for failing it is WRONG - the Torksey viaduct is perfectly useable, and I don't believe that you have seen it since before 2015 when it reopened. I have actually walked all of it apart from a couple of short sections in Gainsborough and Torksey village, and I don't review walks I did before SlowWays started because they may have changed.
