Connect Orrell with Slow Ways

We’re creating a network of walking routes that connect all of Britain’s towns, cities and national parks

Help connect Orrell

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 Orrell’s Slow Ways.

Latest Updates

Whilst entirely functional, as has mentioned already in Andrew's previous review, this not a particularly exciting route and includes a bizarre deviation from the main road around Newtown. If taking this route, the alternative "Orrwig Two" would be preferable....

First, the route from Eskdale over the roundabout to Tanhouse Road isn't quite as straightforward as the route suggests. Lastly, there is no pavement or safe way of crossing the main road to get to the route uphill. I've updated it slightly for SkeOrr Two for a safer and more accurate route....

Walk this route

It is rather boring and follows Ormskirk Road except for a bizarre diversion down Tunstall Lane for no apparent reason....

Walk this route

One could go down Beacon Road, then turn left down the footpath and follow the perimeter of the housing estate but that's unnecessary deviation....
