Help connect Aspull

Many Slow Ways have several route options. Some will be better than others, or good for different reasons.

Our goal is for each Slow Way to have at least one route that is verified and surveyed. To be verified – and get its snail badge – a route needs at least three positive reviews.

Give a hike and help get a for every one of Aspull’s Slow Ways.

This is a walk of 2 halves, a rather depressing walk through residential area, or countryside bordering residential areas (containing disappointing levels of detritus), and pleasing open aspects and woodland walks (from Top lock). Apart from a few narrow gaps and low steps there weren’t any obstructions and the path was good and reasonably dry (even after a wet spell). On parts of the first section I felt a little closed in by the surrounding vegetation....
