Help connect Tadcaster

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 Tadcaster’s Slow Ways.

The path is never hard to follow, but does have some wet and muddy sections, and there was one point where it was covered in shallow water. Partington Lane is an NCN cycle route, but still has muddy sections. Note that the final short field crossing from the Peggy Ellerton Farm lane is no longer there on the ground, but it is easy just to follow the lane left to reach Chantry Lane instead. From here navigation is easy, but there are muddy sections on the lane and this section seemed quite long late in the day....

Both use the same route from Tadcaster to Newton Kyme, and they cross over in places, so you could mix and match. The section from Newton Kyme to Wetherby is mostly tarmac, so would be suitable for wheelers. The section along the river from Tadcaster to Newton Kyme is not, but there's good pavement most of the way from Tadcaster to Newton Kyme which would give an accessible alternative. It then follows the river all the way to the village of Newton Kyme, passing through a few gates on the way. From Newton Kyme village it re-joins the road for a short while, mostly on pavement, before turning off onto the mixed use pedestrian and cycle path along the old railway line....

The route passes under Skeldergate Bridge, and then out along Terry Avenue, which is initially a road, but later turns into a mixed use cycle path and pedestrian route past Rowntree Park and under Millenium Bridge. The route then continues along a grassy footpath alongside the river and passes under the A64 as it crosses the Ouse, before emerging in Bishopthorpe, passing along the main road road and then residential areas. From Copmanthorpe, the route follows the old Roman Road from York to Tadcaster (or Eboracum to Calcaria if you prefer). The route then crosses the A64 via the road bridge, continues on the pedestrian/cycle path for a while before turning off to continue following the Roman Road. The route then joins the quiet road from Catterton, follows the A64 for a while along the cycleway, and then heads into Tadcaster along the road and over the bridge....

The route out of Long Marston was very straight forward as we headed gently upwards parallel to the B1224. Views open up (photo 1) all the way to the White Horse north and then we turned left and followed a very long lane up to Healaugh Grange. We then followed the public bridleway past Healaugh Priory (photo 3) all the way to Tadcaster. This lane drops us at the edge of Tadcaster and it is a straight forward walk into Tadcaster (photo 4)....

The walk starts off in the centre of Tadcaster following the main road heading towards York and briefly along the side of the A64 before heading off on a minor road and then very quickly on to an easy to find path that goes along between two fields....

A steady away walk, little idustrial to start with around back of industrial units Garforth, 3 miles or so to Aberford. No refuelling stops between Garforth and Tadcaster, so carry your own refreshment....

The section from Tadcaster to Ulleskelf is easy to follow along the bank of the Wharfe. Leaving Ulleskelf by the river, it would be easy to follow the well-walked flood bank rather than follow the public footpath, which is shorter and ends at a gate on the road, which was locked....

At the bridge the route meets the Ebor Way and then follows it all the way to York, with just one slight variation in Bishopthorpe village. It winds through the large villages of Copmanthorpe and Bishopthorpe (crossing the East Coast main railway line on the level between the 2 villages - only cross when the light show green!) Once through Bishopthorpe, with views through the gatehouse to the impressive Bishopthorpe Palace, home of the Archbishops of York, the route follows the bank of the river Ouse all the way into York city centre, ducking under the A64 road bridge with its uplifting graffiti and passing the haunt of the rare, protected tansy beetle....
