Help connect Yate

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 Yate’s Slow Ways.

Latest Updates

Thornbury—Yate

Mockymock added Thoyat two, a new walk from Thornbury to Yate

Walk this route

Good route all the way from Thornbury to the edge of Yate where new and recent housing development has obliterated or rearranged the course of footpaths. It is easy enough to muddle around it all but I will share an alternative version which is easily navigable...

Mockymock

Walk this route

It’s not the most exciting walk as it traverses an intensively farmed area with a lot of electricity pylons running through it but is pleasant overall and does exactly what it says on the tin....

Wick (Bristol)—Yate

Mockymock added Wicyat two, a new walk from Wick (Bristol) to Yate

Walk this route

Initially it uses tracks and paths through a wooded nature reserve and a quiet lane to pass around quarries north of Wick, before picking up the Monarch’s Way for a few miles through fields along the course of the River Boyd. Here the route takes a good cycle path through Wapley Bushes nature reserve (more like a park really) which leads on over the mainline railway and follows a green corridor beside it into the edge of Yate....

Mockymock

Walk this route

Not the best route between Wick and Yate anyway, but the deal-breaker is that you cannot cross the M4 where it suggests you do and the only nearby alternative option involves walking along a busy B road for half a kilometre. There is a footway by the road, so it is safe, but it is not the nicest walk....

The remainder of the walk is on flat ground through fields, then around the outer edge of Chipping Sodbury’s housing estate sprawl and into town, all in the company of the little River Frome, which leads through various villagey, hidden back lanes and footpaths before popping out rather startlingly opposite Yate’s huge modern shopping centre and a very useful bus hub. Not so much to see on the lower ground and it is a bit of a suburban walk around the edge of Chipping Sodbury, but the urban walk along the Frome river is fun....
