Help connect Doncaster

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 Doncaster’s Slow Ways.

Leaving Doncaster train station is probably the most confusing part, but it is straight forward after that....

Inevitably this is a mostly urban walk, although it uses the Doncaster greenway where it can. The most interesting section of the walk was Lakeside, with its attractive lake and the Doncaster rugby/football stadium. When you get to the first lot of water coming from Rossington (a small marina, with flats opposite), keep to the path right on its edge rather than crossing the park – which is shown as the route but is now being built over....

Access to the Doncaster Cycleway was from just before the roundabout, and had a cycle barrier restricting the available width. The track continued past the back of some houses and eventually brought us out by a retail park on the north side of Doncaster centre. We stayed on the north east side of North Bridge Street over the railway, and used stairs to get down into the car park, in order to cross underneath the road through arches, and into the bus station. The only alternative, from the north, would be to detour through some of the open shopping area and come in to the station square from the east....

This route is impossible because there is no way from the south west side of North Bridge Road directly into the bus station then rail station....

It was mainly fine except one stretch of path which was over ankle deep and I took my shoes and socks off to wade through which wouldn't be all that nice in winter! A mix of national cycle path, footpaths and urban walking with plenty to keep you interested along the route as well....

A short pavement walk from the station via the attractive stone church leads to Doncaster Road, which tells us we are heading the right way. We fork left from Sustrans route 62 and after passing through a retail park, hopefully gates never closed we arrive at a major road crossing. We cross water and rails then take steps to the lower level which allows us to pass under the bridge and enter the subterranean bus station which may not be accessible 24 hours so the road tunnel might be the only midnight route....

Just before the roundabout we leave the road to turn left along the signposted cycle track, then left again onto an old railway. Either way we cross through an archway under North Bridge Road and into the bus station, then follow signs for Trains to reach the meeting point outside Doncaster station....

Unfortunately the route from North Bridge Road to Doncaster station cannot be followed as plotted, as the route down through the bus station goes from the east side of the road not the west - there is no exit from the west side other than the road tunnel....

River work is being done currently at Marsh Gate prison however you can still stay Riverside from Newton Farm to the works fencing and then follow the River Don to the cement works at Marsh Gate. From Connisborough Viaduct walking from Doncon you can stay on TP2 all the way to Liverpool!!...

New route in Bessacarr through the new housing estate and under the railway line isn’t signposted but as I knew the area I was able to find it. Good footpaths all the way suitable in all weather conditions, with very little traffic for the main part....

The stretch adjacent to the Dolomite Quarry near Warmsworth is particularly bad as the track is shared with quarry traffic and also involves passing through 2 narrow gates, see photo. There is a short section of road up the hill from Sprotbrough Flash and then the route passes through Hexthorpe Flats park and the streets of Hexthorpe....
