Help connect Hessle
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 Hessle’s Slow Ways.

A really nice route along the Humber Estuary, however the path near North Ferriby is dependent on the tidal conditions - even when the tide is out, is can be very muddy. The only diversion from this is quite far in land (although through very pleasant woods for a section)....
Achieves a traffic free route into a city centre (barring a few roads that allow safe crossing), so you should expect a few bits aren’t the most scenic or serene....
There are cafes on the South bank of the Humber and a country park area on the North bank....
This route is off road but the section along side the dual carriage way was unpleasant and overgrown with nettles. As you get into Hull it improves as you get away from the road. You go past several derelict dockside buildings....
If you want to avoid these steps start and end your walk at St Andrew's Quay retail park. Once you have passed St Andrews Quay retail park the path continues until the entire Humber Bridge is in view and the path takes a right turn. Hull City Centre is well supplied with shops and retail, including a large Tesco Extra directly opposite the train station in the St John's Centre. You have to walk a little bit into Hessle town centre from the train station but there are newsagents and a number of small bars and restaurants there....
Humber Bridge is currently closed to pedestrians and cyclists (from April 2021). See https://www.humberbridge.co.uk/ for details....
Pleasantly surprised as there was much more green space walking in an urban area than I thought there would be. It is difficult to follow without a GPX track on a GPS with a background of street mapping - I used the standard option on OS mapping app. The route follows cycle route 1 at the start although there are 2 deviations: 1) right at the start using Southgate rather than South Lane and 2) coming upto Boothferry Road it deviates to the East slightly....
