Stamford’s eight Slow Ways are 50% checked
Help connect Stamford
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 Stamford’s Slow Ways.

The route then followed quite a busy section of road walking from Stretton to Clipsham, mostly with sufficient road verges to avoid traffic. On the far side the route continued along farm tracks until reaching the hamlet of Pickworth, before a long section also along farm tracks plus a short section of quiet road until Great Casterton. Here the route left the Rutland Round path, and continued along the road through the outskirts of Stamford before reaching the town centre, crossing the Meadows over the river Wellend, and finally to the railway station....
This route visits some of Northamptonshire's prettiest villages with very little road walking, a variety of terrains and a well-placed cafe in Fineshade Woods. Navigation is easy, as the Jurassic Way is well signed, and the only "hazard" is crossing and re-crossing the A43. The section between Corby tunnel (signs that it may get muddy in winter) and the housing estate is a bit bleak, but soon traversed....
Seamed to be a lot of road walking with no footpath, the roads weren't busy. Other than that straight forward...
A bridge has been knocked down along the side of the Nene which means a bit of a detour near the rowing lake and a bit of back tracking if starting in Peterborough....
Rough ground and a few stiles, couple of very short sections along quiet roads with narrow bridges....

The Tickencote to Empingham stretch is pleasant but the trek around the Anglia Water car parks and cycling routes around Rutland Water are a little tedious, though safe and off road....

Good route, a bit overgrown on the Rutland Round. Lovely walk through Rutland water....
Lizzie added Colsta two, a new walk from Colsterworth to StamfordWalk this route
Scenic route with mixed terrain, almost all off-road and just a couple of spots where you have to take care with traffic. Out of Peterborough city centre within a mile, the next three or four miles are along the river and through Nene Park....

Best walking route from Bourne to Stamford or vice versa. Done this twice with variations...
