Help connect Ormskirk
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 Ormskirk’s Slow Ways.

Plenty interesting things to see like old railway track beds and nice countryside between Skelmersdale and Ormskirk. Can be a bit muddy in places....
Part of the walk is along a disused railway line which has been designated as a public footpath and named The Smith Way....
Mostly a wander along an old railway (at time of writing, blocked in places by fallen trees), and across some fields, often wet and muddy. That said, it's a good way of connecting the two places; just a shame it excludes wheeled users....
The footpath that starts in Sandy Lane actually finishes in Pygons Hill Lane where you have to turn right (not left!) to get to Sudell Lane....
