Progress towards triple-checked route options for Scarborough’s five Slow Ways: 45%
Help connect Scarborough
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 Scarborough’s Slow Ways.

In addition there is a high water marker which is itself strikingly high up, and just below the allotments and before the path leading to the reservoir and Falsgrave Park, a blue plaque marks a house used as a wireless station during WWII, working closely with Bletchley Park....
