Yorkshire Wolds Way update
Here on the Yorkshire Wolds Way we are gearing up to another year with plenty of exciting projects taking place along the trail.
Insert Image Our Tracker Packs are out and available for hire – ideal for intrepid explorers young and old alike! These packs contain everything you need to enjoy a great day out as a family on the Yorkshire Wolds Way. There are lots of fun activities to take part in as you follow an attractive circuit using the route at Welton, Londesborough, Wharram Percy or Filey. Included are binoculars, wildlife identification booklets, games, maps and even a bee finger puppet! These packs can be hired for £5 for the day – and if you are interested then contact me on email@example.com for more details.
Art pieces and benches are starting to be installed along the Yorkshire Wolds Way this year as part of a tourism project for the area. In total 10 pieces are planned along the way under the title of WANDER – art along the Yorkshire Wolds Way. Three of these are underway and they include Jony Easterby's artwork near West Knapton which is inspired by the ancient history of the area. It will include a winding chalk path edged by split oak fence posts leading to a viewing platform and a newly created dew pond. Warrior figures - carved in lime-stained oak - will 'guard' the work and are based on archaeological finds from the local area. The dew pond will act as a sky mirror enhancing the panoramic views.
Snowdrop season is now upon us – always a great sign of the advancing spring. Each year walkers are welcome to see the snowdrops at the delightful village of Londesborough set on the Yorkshire Wolds Way. These opportunities take place on Snowdrop Sundays – 13th and 20th February. This is an opportunity to wander at will exploring the snowdrops within "The Wilderness" section of Londesborough Park
Trail running is becoming ever more popular along our National Trails – and we congratulate Nigel Braithwaite – who has just set the first official record time for the trail of 23 Hours and 42 minutes. It must have been exhausting! Nigel has now laid down the gauntlet for any ultrarunners out there who want to break the new record. Too much for me though - a pleasant stroll along the route followed by a satisfying visit to one of our hospitable pubs along the route is more my style!
