Help connect Stamford Bridge

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 Bridge’s Slow Ways.

For field '1' from the end of flat lane to black dike it was at the time of this review overgrown - follow the ditch on the right and at its end cross the middle of the field following the crop boundaries (if in season) and black dike can be identified by the treeline and field converging in the corner....

Shortly after leaving Stamford Bridge I found the short section of path beside the disused railway viaduct very overgrown with cheek-high nettles. The least pleasant bit of the route was the road section between Warthill and Bad Bargain Lane. I found benches at Gate Helmsley churchyard, Warthill pond, Stray Road, Huntington Road, New Earswick, Huntington churchyard and Earswick...

We did this walk in August 2023, This is a great walk, lots of cycleways, farm tracks and paths, mainly very dry despite lots of recent rain. We have made a slight change to this route (and created YorSta3) as I wouldn;t walk the Osbaldwick Link Road, A1079, Grimstom Bar Roundabout bit....

The route starts off well with a nice walk along the river, which is enjoyable. One negative I found of this route was that a lot of the walk was on roads, which while not busy, there is no paths so you have to be careful when walking round corners. There was one small section of the route where the slowways app appears to bring you across a farm, which is not accessible....

After crossing a couple of busy roads at pedestrian crossing the route takes you onto a cycle path which you remain on all the way to Osbaldwick. Once passed through the pretty town of Osbaldwick, the route requires you to cross a main junction at a pedestrian crossing and walk the path alongside the busy A1079. The route then turns off the A1079 onto York Road which lacks a pavement and so requires you to walk on the road....

There was a small portion of the route that required crossing a field with deep furrows, so probably not ideal for wheelchairs, buggies etc., otherwise should be accessible to most people....

I set off to walk north from Wilberfoss to Stamford Bridge on a bright, cold day in early January; as one of the shorter local Slow Ways it seemed a good choice for a winter's day with short daylight hours and long shadows. Immediately beyond the pinewood north of Low Catton the route was temporarily impassable due to flooding of the River Derwent, so I doubled back to the bend in the road at Low Catton village and followed Low Catton Road into Stamford Bridge. If walking north, on arrival at Low Catton from High Catton, take the clearly-signed public footpath to the right before the bend in the road....

We left the Aviva office at 9:30 and made it to Stamford Bridge by 1:45pm with c30mins break at the lovely Balloon Tree farm shop and Café in Gate Helmsley. Next there is a short walk along a busy (and fast) main road into Stamford Bridge, aided by some lovely views....

Highlights on the route for me were looking at some of York's industrial heritage, the open farmland above Gate Helmsley, and the lovely old stone road bridge and brick railway viaduct at Stamford Bridge....

This is an enjoyable if unremarkable 4.5 mile walk between the villages of Wilberfoss and Stamford Bridge over roads, paths and farmlands. We walked this on a warm July morning with the songs of skylarks filling our ears. There is an easy potential detour via the Gold Cup in Low Catton for liquid refreshment should you so wish, and can easily turn it into a pub walk with good options at both the start and the end of the walk!...
