Walk of the Month - July

1st July 2014

As a new feature we are going to recommend a Walk a Month for you to enjoy over the Summer and Autumn Season.  All of these walks are suggested with bus users in mind and we will also give details of the times of the buses to get the best from your walk.

Our Walk of the Month for July is the Welton Wander Try a Trail Circular Walk.

This walk is designed with bus users from Hull in mind.  Catch the Sunday Service EYMS bus and in just 45 minutes you are away from the hustle and bustle of Hull and into the delightfully peaceful Yorkshire Wolds Countryside at Welton.

This is a lovely short circular walk at the southern end of the Yorkshire Wolds. It is a great introduction to the Yorkshire Wolds, with plenty of woodland and uplifting views across the Humber Estuary. When you visit Welton be sure to call in at The Green Dragon Inn. It has a special claim to fame as it was here that the notorious Highwayman Dick Turpin was arrested. At the time it was for shooting a gamecock and for stealing horses - only later was his true identity revealed!
• Distance: 4.3 miles (6.9km)
• Duration: allow 3 hours
• Difficulty: an easy to moderate circular walk

How to reach Welton
This is a great walk for anyone from Hull wanting to easily reach the Yorkshire Wolds, using the Sunday 153 EYMS bus service.
We recommend that you catch the 11.00am service from Hull interchange, which gets to Welton at 11.45am
3 hours should be plenty to enjoy the delights of this walk and give you a bit of time afterwards to relax at The Green Dragon before returning on the 153 bus at either 3.47pm or 5.47pm
