Help connect Guisborough

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 Guisborough’s Slow Ways.

You can see the state of the Tocketts Mill boggy area - if anything it was more muddy this walk than last week yet its been dry for the last few days. Look for the dead tree to find the footpath down to Tocketts Mill....

Walk this route

Recommend it as a dry weather route - mostly stone \ tarmac path but some single file mud track, crop\grass field tracks, undergrowth. The indicated route is over a style (next to the open field gate) but this trail is heavily overgrown and (as it turned out once I managed to get through 50 yards of it), it comes back out over another style into the same field - so its best to ignore the style and just go thru the field gate and follow the tractor ruts parallel to the indicated route. Exiting this field is difficult - the entry to the trees is well hidden but the map route is accurate so use your phone map in highest zoom to get you to the correct spot and then look for signs someone else has walked (me LOL) thru the grass and down into the trees. Only 98% bike-able - a muddy crop field and a hilly single file wire fence\holly section precludes using a bike....

Walk this route

Walked this route from Guisborough to Danby on a classic changeable spring day. - there is one quite tricky stile right at the end, as you approach Danby (see first photo) where you have to climb up some stone steps. - there's not really any places to stop once you leave Guisborough. I came across maybe 1 bench (at the top of the first climb our of Guisborough Forest)....

Walk this route

It's quite a varied route, starting out on a quiet road and an old railway line out of Guisborough (near the famous priory, which is well worth a look before you start), uphill through a wood, before emerging out onto the moors and into the national park, where I saw lots of grouse....

Route does use some busier roads and has a small section beneath the raikway line where no pavement exists but most is safe. Terrain prohibits disabled access. An enjoyable quiet walk....

Walk this route

A detour to cross the beck at the Tocketts Mill park bridge is possible by following the stream side path or following the path alongside Raisbeck wood higher up. Folk need to use the bridleway alongside Grewgrass lane to keep safe....

Although it goes through quite a few farmers fields and over stiles unnecessarily. The walk along the road outside Guisborough is not a great one either....
