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 fairly direct route from Howden to Gilberdyke and the 2nd part of the walk is on very minor roads from Eastrington to Sandholme, then south to Gilberdyke is fine. However the initial part of the walk for about mile along the B1230 with speeding traffic and no pavement, is dangerous not suitable for pedestrians. Long Lane, Eastrington is also somewhat busy and has no pavement and the blind corner on the narrow bridge over the rail crossing is dangerous for pedestrians.
I suggest an alternative route to Eastrington might be via the footpath from Howden Station along Drain Lane track, crossing A614 to footpath Burland to Portington. This makes the route much longer and safer except for about 100m on A614.
