Help connect Bassenthwaite

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 Bassenthwaite’s Slow Ways.

The route then joins Isel road a minor road with little traffic but not much of a verge to walk on. Follow the road turning left to cross the river Derwent at Isel bridge.
