Help connect Grantham
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 Grantham’s Slow Ways.

I had a very enjoyable lunch at the Rutland Arms ( Dirty Duck ) There is a seat near Muston Bridge for lunch if anyone doesn't want to use the Duck for lunch....
From Swarby to Culverthorpe was a relatively quiet road (6 cars passed) followed by a walk around Culverthorpe lakes and a useful picnic bench before rejoining the road. The walk from Culverthorpe to Welby was a long road section with over 30 cars passing. The road south of Welby was much quieter, before the route followed a narrow green lane across to the High Dyke....
The route dives into a low narrow but illuminated tunnel under the station before joining the pavement alongside the main road. I can't see the advantage of the loop onto the isolated section of canal but it's there if you want it or just stay on the road which the route has to rejoin to pass under the A1. The canal walk continues alongside more locks to the edge of Muston village where the towpath route joins the cycle route for a short way before joining the road. The route continues along what was the main road but cut off since the Bottesford Bypass was built so it's a quiet dead end with proper crossing arrangements although no lights to stop the traffic....
