Help connect Wallsend

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 Wallsend’s Slow Ways.

Apart from the blocked section this is a pleasant route which is why I have counterintuitively given it three stars despite flagging it for access. The route is easy walking....

Really nice route starting from Segedunum including the marina, sea front and lovely views. Not many hills so an easy walk. The mapped route was very accurate...

Simone Wyatt

Walk this route

Not the most beautiful route, but interesting, easily walkable, mostly flat, & some good views of the Tyne. Some parts run through warehouse areas, or don't have good lighting - it isn't necessarily one I'd walk alone or at night. Some stairs....
