Help connect Middleham

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 Middleham’s Slow Ways.

Latest Updates

A good route but adding to the initial review, the main wood path through Ellington Firth was impassable when walked on this occasion due to flooding so an alternative suggestion (continuing south to Stark Bank Road then east along until the route is rejoined) has been suggested. The rest of the route is good and easy to follow, with very pretty views and scenery along the river Ure, and good stops (although the tea room at Jervaulx is closed, it makes a great picnic spot). Unsuitable for wheeled travelling....
