Help connect Boroughbridge

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 Boroughbridge’s Slow Ways.

I totally agree with the comments made by reviewer 1 that the detour from the river into Bishop Monkton is unnecessary unless you wish to call there for refreshments - there is a pub there.
