Help connect Dewsbury

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 Dewsbury’s Slow Ways.

When you turn right away from the river, keep on the footpath to the near side of the grassy storm drain/overflow rather than following the official route across the concrete bridge. Once you are off the road, the stile into the second field is really high and difficult to climb. The route takes you into a field (coloured bright green on the Slow Ways map). The field contained a field of cows plus young calves and a large bull. Perhaps it would have been OK, but we chose to climb over a few strands of barbed wire into the neighbouring field (on the left) before re-joining the route at the end of the field....
