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.

We've been advised at Slow Ways that there is not a bridge crossing the river at 644617. The review by Yorkterrier gives three alternative options and Haxshe two is the one using Foss Walk and Ebor Way.


22 May 2021 Spring

I have walked this route several times as either a walk from Strensall to Sheriff Hutton or from Strensall to Haxby. A lot of the route follows the Centenary Way/Foss Walk/Ebor way with the odd exception as detailed below.

The first part of the route to Towthorpe Lane is on tarmac public roads and, after the houses finish in Haxby, has no pavement so care needs to be taken.

You then walk across/around a field to cut out the corner of Towthorpe Road to arrive at the bridge over the river Foss. You then walk along the side of the Foss up until Strensall New Bridge. The official footpath is on the west bank and is well maintained frass/earth. You are also able to walk along the east bank too, but this is not currently an official footpath. At Strensall New Bridge, you follow the footpath signs ond walk along the west bank of the Foss until you reach the Sheriff Hutton Road.

Between here and the York/North Yorkshire county boundaries, you have three options.

1. Follow the Centenary Way along the west bank of the Foss. As of May 2020, part of this route is blocked under repair and so there is a diversion through Duncombe Farm (you would have to walk along the non-pavemented Sheriff Hutton Road). Whilst the map shows the first part of this route correctly, the part where it crosses the Foss to the SW footpath by Brecks Lane Farm does not exist as there4 is no bridge)
2 Cross over the new footbridge and go up what is the escape path for the Brecks Lane estate and carry on up the eastern bank of the Foss till the footpath runs out along it. It is at this point the SW footpath is available and you carry on up the route as shown.
3 Walk along the route of the Foss Walk/Ebor Way through Strensall Village and then along Brecks Lane towards Walbutts Sewage Works. At the point you get to the railway communications mast, you meet the other end of the SW path and then carry along the mapped route.

Taking the mapped route (not Option 1 above), you pass by the Sewage Works and towards the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust maintained part of Strensall Common and follow the footpath. This gets quite narrow with a pathway betyween a proiperty and farm boundary but then iopens up to allow you to cross a beck and then the Foss over a footbridge.

At this point you leave York and enter North Yorkshire. The route is fairly straightforward here along signposted farmland and is fairly falt until you rise up towards West Lilling. Within West Lilling, you follow the footpath signs and then head towards Sheriff Hutton with views of the Castle as you approach heading up towards the Village Hall and cricket field.
