Description

This new route between Skelmanthorpe and Royston is designed (by two locals) to meet SlowWays' criteria and, specifically, to:

(a) avoid entering Yorkshire Sculpture Park, and having to pay its £9pp entry fee, by using adjacent footpaths and minor roads to walk around and outside its perimeter. You may choose to pay the entry fee to enjoy YSP's beautiful grounds, sculptures and excellent facilities - see https://ysp.org.uk

(b) avoid the closed (as reviewed in April 2023) and poorly signposted paths on the original SkeRoy route, by following the route of the established Barnsley Boundary walk, on most of its waymarked walk no3 between east of the M1 and Royston - leaflet with map and directions downloadable from https://ldwa.org.uk

Surveys

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.

  1. Complete the survey training.
