Help connect Yeadon

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 Yeadon’s Slow Ways.

The route up the Chevin is steep, as others have said, but the views are a good reward and the bridleway on to Yeadon is easy walking. Can get muddy in places due to high footfall....

One particularly tricky road crossing of Leeds Road, which is a fast (40, but feels faster when you are on foot!) and busy road, with not amazing visibility at that spot....

Good surface all the way but be aware of the barriers at each end of the path that may prevent wheelchairs etc. from getting through....

Shame about the short section along the road at this point but the road is quiet and a footpath appears as you approach Esholt. Then out the other side of Esholt, you are briefly back onto an extremely quiet road before heading into the woods. The worst bit is the long drag up the hill to the town centre at the end!...

This is an enjoyable way to walk between Yeadon and Horsforth with a great view across the Leeds from Billing Hill. There were cows in the fields, but they all appeared very used to walkers and were not bothered by us. There are a few stiles....

I really enjoyed walking this route and did not expect the country fields in this part of Leeds. Loved the views....

An easy route to follow using street footways down out of Yeadon, a short length of walking down a lane then into the woodland tracks. After another section of walking along a quiet lane, the slow way crosses fields, then after crossing the river on a sturdy footbridge continues into Shipley along the well maintained towpath....

A pleasant route quickly leaving the facilities of Yeadon, enjoying the views across the Wharfe valley and down through the quarry history above Pool. Muddy in places, some rough tracks, stiles and kissing gates, with one fast road crossing....
