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 walked this route on a warm dry March day, from York towards Long Marston. After leaving the suburbs of York the route passes through the pretty villages of Askham Bryan and Rufforth before arriving at its attractive final destination. There are few views to speak of, owing to York's flat terrain, but points of interest along the way include York city walls, Hob Moor, the 3 villages and their lovely old churches, Rufforth pinfold and an operational airfield.

Route-finding was straightforward apart from having to take care to leave Hob Moor at the right exit - once on the Moor it is a lovely flat, green, open space where it is not so easy to keep your bearings! As well as the Moor, the route uses residential streets, country lanes, farm tracks, the edge of a tarmac runway (beware low-flying aircraft!) and field-edge footpaths. After a period of dry weather we were surprised to find the field edge paths between Rufforth and Long Marston very muddy, but the rest of the route was dry.

Safety-wise the only tricky bit is crossing the A1237 York ring road which is a single carriageway with a 60mph speed limit at that point - we got across straight away on this occasion but perhaps we were just lucky as it is a busy road.

The route was well supplied with benches which allowed us to take short breaks when we chose and enjoy the sunshine! We also treated ourselves to tea and cake at a cafe in Rufforth. All in all a very enjoyable day.

I think there might be a more direct Lonyor route that could be devised via Acomb, Knapton and Harewood Whin, but I'm very happy for this one to be part of the Slow Ways network.
