Connect Warrington with Slow Ways
We’re creating a network of walking routes that connect all of Britain’s towns, cities and national parks
more walks and reviews are needed to fully connect Warrington to the verified network. Can you give a hike and help?Give a hike!
Slow Ways linking Warrington and Burtonwood, Culcheth, Frodsham, Lymm, Newton-le-Willows, Runcorn, Stretton, Warburton, Widnes

Warrington’s nine Slow Ways are 50% checked
Help connect Warrington
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 Warrington’s Slow Ways.

We live in Woolston, which is mid way so we do both ways there and back which is approximately 9 miles....

From urban Warrington, we work our way down a number of paved roads and over a footbridge before we head onto the tarmac paths of Victoria Park. Good shops at the Warrington end, with the odd one along the way, and with good transport links, this is a good route, albeit mostly only good for walkers....
Muddy in places, but it is a good walk. Good shops and both ends, with the odd one along the way, and with good transport links, this is a good route, albeit mostly only good for walkers....
Starting in Widnes, it is well-paved, with ramps at crossings, and the route passes a supermarket and, once over the main road, a pub and fast food outlets. There is a tarmac path just ahead that leads to a footbridge at the road, from where we wander through a wood on an earthern path, which can be muddy in places. It is 98% accessible; just the lack of ramps in Widnes and the housing in Sankey Bridges make is not totally friendly for wheeled users....
Before this it is understandably urban, but does have a nice section through Victoria Park and a historically fascinating stretch along the Ship Canal....
Accurately mapped, except for immediately after the M62, where you should stick to the lower path to the right of the plotted route (i.e right of the path marked in green on the OS)....
The initial section on the Bridgewater Canal and the long stretch along the Ship Canal provide some nice rural moments, with occasional views of the Mersey estuary, but the ambience deteriorates in the final third....
Despite following a disused canal for much of its length, this route never quite manages to escape an urban, industrial feel....
Extremely pleasant once out of Warrington and onto the Trans Pennine Trail and then the Bridgewater Canal....
It is possible to stay on a path along the river and then follow a marked public right of way through the chemical works which emerges at the Liverpool Road roundabout west of the town centre, but this is extremely unpleasant. See alternative route - Frodwar two - for a much nicer option....
Chris Manasseh added Frodwar two, a new walk from Frodsham to WarringtonWalk this route
Probably not suitable for wheeelchairs due to a couple of 'kissing' gates and barriers....
A couple of road crossings leaving Warrington, and a section of pavement-less road outside Burtonwood....

Flat and largely step-free apart from a couple of kerbs, plus one metal swing gate and one un-gated metal barrier (see photos)....
