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)....

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....
