Help connect Snaith

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 Snaith’s Slow Ways.

Walk this route

Started on this walk from Snaith Station via West Cowick then on to Pollington.Then over the Aire and Calder canal towards Sykehouse,crossing over the River Went into South Yorkshire.The river was very high and sometimes this route is impassable after very heavy rain. Onwards to the village hall for a well deserved break! Short walk then to The canal bank with a long straight towards Braithwaite where we crossed over on to a short road towards the river Don,take the second public footpath sign in between the river and the canal.Follow this path all the way to Stainforth Bridge where we crossed over to the other bank.Carried on passed the pub beer garden( on a sunny day good spot for quick pint) Then we followed the canal all the way into Thorne where there are plenty of places to eat.All in all a very enjoyable ,flat walk along side rivers and canals....

Turn right and follow the footpath downstream along the River Aire On the opposite side of the river you will see the tower which is part of the Carlton Towers property, home of Lord and Lady Fitzalan Howard.

Refreshments are available in RAWCLIFFE (Fish&Chip shop,Tea Room and pub as well as a food store) After leaving the river bank at Airmyn, the footpaths are easy to negotiate (tarmac surface/pavements) The walk passes West Park Goole, where there is a very good cafe I would certainly walk this route again...

Keith Greenwood added Snatho three, a new walk from Snaith to Thorne

Walk this route

The route was enjoyable and overall easy to navigate, except for a misleading large NO ENTRY sign ( with a small footpath sign alongside that is easy to miss). There is also a bridge over a dyke that needs attention. An interesting area on the walk was the canal side at Whitley Lock....

We walked the Slow Ways route from Snaith to Selby on a very hot day.over the River Aire and along the flood Bank towards West Bank.Then a mixture of tracks and footpaths with several woods on the way,which provided some much needed cooling shade!!Watch out for misleading Private Road signs "hiding" Public Footpath arrows.Onwards then through a horse jumping field but no problems there.Over a level crossing then on to a country Road towards Brayton Canal Bridge where we had a much needed break.Final stretch along the Canal Bank into Selby. This walk provides a mix of Flood Bank,Footpath,Tracks ,and Canal Bank so I would certainly walk it again....

This walk uses quite a lot of minor roads(without pavements) but they are not busy roads and I felt safe walking on them. The walk crosses the River Went which is pleasant and there is another pleasant section alongside a canal....

Slow Ways Cristie added Asksna three, a new walk from Askern to Snaith

Walk this route

Unfortunately this route has to use a fairly long stretch of roadside walking (no pavement). which can be difficult due to HGVs that use the narrow road. There are also sections which appear to deviate from the most direct route, simply because they are not recorded....

This is a very unsuitable route from Askern to Snaith, Once the route leaves the road near Askern, the footpaths between there and Fenwick are very poorly maintained....
