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.

Walked from South Shields to Jarrow in October 2023 … a journey I have made by car many times !
Streets of South Shields led along to the river and the Customs House passing interesting houses on the way . After more Road walking the path followed the River Don around St Paul’s church ( Venerable Bede) and Bede’s World ( there is a nice cafe .)
Headed into the shopping area of Jarrow itself … I went to the Jarrow Grammar School over 50 years ago and the shops were new then ! While a lot of this route is housing / industry there is always something of interest .

To be honest I wasn't expecting much from this walk because I knew there was a significant section of walking beside roads through industrial areas but I was pleasantly suprised. The route starts out in the town centre and goes along streets out of town past shops, houses and industrial units. Then it was a short stretch of Bridleway with some interesting artwork leading to the River Don. What a wonderful suprise! This short stretch along the river to St Paul's Church and monastery was beautiful. The church and associated museum and monastery ruins is well worth a visit. Then it was onto a short stretch of grass verge to the main road past the Port of Tyne. The walking was fine and there were separate lanes for cyclists and pedestrians. The views weren't great but then there is no realistic alternative between Jarrow and South Shields.
There was some artwork as I walked into Southn Shields. Further along the road there were some steps leading down to the river. I wasn't sure about this diversion from the more direct route but once again I was suprised how attractive this area was. Yet more artwork beside the river togtehr with seating and an attractive fountain. You also pass The Customs House theatre. It was a short walk from there up the bank to the town centre.
