Help connect Selby
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 Selby’s Slow Ways.

The right of way between New House Farm and Wistow is not maintained and runs right across a field that is either planted right across with crops leaving no path or is a muddy rutted hellscape, depending on the time of year. Some other sections of the route between New House Farm and Selby are not well maintained and are in a poor state. The route between Wistow and Cawood is a good quality path....
Overall a good route - the footpath going out of Wistow off the road towards Selby goes straight over a field and has not been left marked by the farmer but following the farm track works fine....
