Walk of the month - August

Published on

Our friends at the Yorkshire Wolds Way are putting together some walks in the area which can be accessed by bus.  They're a great way to get out and about in the beautiful Yorkshire countryside.

This month's walk is the Market Weighton Meander - a circular walk with a lovely pub to visit on the way!

This walk covers fairly easy terrain, whilst taking in some superb historical sections of the Yorkshire Wolds Way.  Here you can walk in the footsteps of the Market Weighton Giant.  William Bradley stood an incredible 7 feet and 9 inches tall.  At sleepy Goodmanham you will be visiting the birthplace of northern Christianity.  Here also is the award-winning Goodmanham Arms Pub – a walker’s favourite. ( www.goodmanhamarms.co.uk ) The walk also takes you through the most attractive parkland and estate village of Londesborough. 

  • Distance: 7.5 miles (12.1km)
  • Duration: allow 4 to 4 1/2 hours
  • Difficulty: This is an easy circular walk
