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.

Lovely walk over Baildon moor over to Ilkley. You definitely do not want to deviate from the route as there are a few board walk sections through deep bog. Other sections boggy in places without formal crossings, would only attempt in summer for that reason.

You could take a swimsuit and have an invigorating dip in the white wells. Great pints await in Ilkley.

Generally good route but some unnecessary road walking on busy roads without pavements. Easily bypassed on existing footpaths though-check an OS map.
