Description

Head north out of Gainsborough along Church Street, then join the A159 at The Elm Cottage pub, continue north along Morton Terrace/Morton Road past Queen Elizabeth School. At the junction continue to follow the footpath alongside the A159 out of town towards Scunthorpe. The path continues for a little over a mile, until Laundary Cottages, here you need to cross the A159 onto a permissive byway which leads along a field edge to a gate crossing over the railway line. It then proceeds along the field boundaries towards Blyton. The byway leads to Wharton Road, which should then be followed north and then eastward up the hill to Blyton. Heading through the village, then onto Sandbeck Lane. At the playing field there is a footpath signposted that will lead across some fields, and newly planted forestry, towards Laughton. The path joins Blyton Road about 1/2 mile south of Laughton, follow the main road (no footpath, but not a busy road, with ample space on the verges) into Laughton. Proceed through Laughton onto Scotter road, until a junction into Laughton Forest. Here, follow the chalk road into the forest, continuing north onto a footpath past a cottage, until you reach another stone path, turn right here and follow the path out of the forest and back towards the A159. Crossing the A159, you can now follow the pavement northwards all the way to Scotter

Surveys

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.
