Help connect Ulverston

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 Ulverston’s Slow Ways.

This is pleasant easy walking, much of it along quiet country roads and close to the beautiful River Leven....

Walk this route

For about half the length of the road from Lakeside to Newby Bridge, which has lots of careful tourist drivers restricted to 30mph, it is necessary to walk on the road, but there is a pleasant woodland footpath along and above the road for half of it. There are nice views as you walk between the wall and the woods. After crossing the road above Backbarrow, there is a footpath through the woods, which is very nice apart from the noise of traffic on the A590. There is a footpath under the A590, but it could be fairly easy to miss it and cross the road itself....
