Description

Stainburn is not a tourist attraction, has no facilities of any kind and is not near a bus route so is not a natural or expected Slow Ways destination. If walking to Stainburn it is therefore important to work out how you might get back home! We returned by Pool.
Stating in Harrogate, the route crosses the Stray then continues beside a school and quickly becomes countrified. It crosses the railway on a footbridge and descends into Crimple Valley with a good view of the viaduct on the left. It crosses the main A61 (care needed) and enters Pannal through the village churchyard. When repaired, it goes on the South side of the river to near the pub at Burn Bridge but at the time of writing this path is closed to du a landslip and the path on the North side through the houses needs to be used. From here the good path rises steadily on its way to North Rigton passing along a ridge with fine views. There is another pub at North Rigton for refreshments if needed. After North Rigton the path climbs to Almscliffe Crag, again with fine views. From here it follows Merrybank Lane for a short while before turning right and passing along tracks and through grassy fields to Stainburn. This is a very nice route along mainly good paths with very little road walking

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.
