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.

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.
