Help connect Jarrow

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 Jarrow’s Slow Ways.

Cross over the road going past the Metro Station then join a track which follws the line of the railway line. Then take a left turn crossing another road and follow the path signed as a cycle path to Brockley Whins. At the end of the bridge I had to make a decision whether to walk down the side of the A19 and join up with the original route at the railway line or continue straight on and join the original route further on....

It would be greatly improved by the provision of a riverside footpath to connect the section from Royal Quays to Howdon, which currently has to be done alongside main roads, although there are footpaths all the way. Currently the escalators in the pedestrian tunnel are not running; there's a lift or the challenge of descending / ascending the static escalators....
