Walk of the Month - October

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.

October's walk (sorry, we didn't have time to do a walk in September!) is a little different from normal.  It is aimed at people in the Driffield area, and uses a rural bus service you might not have used before.

Discover art and the dry valleys near Fridaythorpe

This bus walk has been designed for users from Driffield, who can use the 135 EYMS service to get to Fridaythorpe.The route is a superb chance to discover the dry valleys that are the unique and stunning features of the Yorkshire Wolds landscape.  At the same time there are two artworks that can be admired along the Way, both part of the WANDER art project.  The bus will drop you off right at the first art feature!  This is the walkers' rest/bus shelter at Fridaythorpe, with its attractive design leading you through the shelter and down to the Village pond.  The second is the incredible earth spiral that makes up “Waves and Time”, nestling into a meeting point of several dry valleys

  • Distance: 7 miles (11km)
  • Duration: allow 4 to 4 1/2 hours
  • Difficulty: This is a moderate circular walk, with a few ups and downs but no major climbs
