Help connect Tebay

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 Tebay’s Slow Ways.

There was also a section near Shap Summit close to the railway where fencing had been erected around large areas of tree-planting, across the public right of way, with no indication of where to walk instead.

The route left Kendal via a fairly direct footpath and a bit of A6 pavement to reach a lovely path alongside then River Mint, and then a quiet lane to Patton Hall Farm.
