The Minster Way

This weekend Becky and 10 friends completed the 50mile National Trail, ‘the Minster Way‘ (or 54miles according to our GPS!) from York Minster to Beverley Minster over two days.
This beautiful (and very long) walk started in the historic York City Centre heading south along the River Ouse; through the Vale of York then joining the bank of the River Derwent and north to the Historic village of Stamford Bridge for a lunch stop.
After lunch we made our way to further through the Vale of York to Bishop Wilton for a quick stop and snack replenish from the community run village shop before heading up a sharp incline; this was the beginning of the Yorkshire Wolds, a more challenging terrain but with stunning views and the home of Kipling House Barn. The villages of Great Givendale and Millington were passed through before dinner at the newly refurbished Star Inn at North Dalton. Becky’s Grandma kindly offered accommodation in North Dalton for the night. Day 1 – 37 miles.
An early start on Sunday, but an easier terrain into the lowlands surrounding Beverley. We walked through villages, woodland and grazing pastures before reaching the banks of the River Hull between Scorborough and Arram. The River and then Railway offered guidance until Beverley – the home stretch!
The final march through North-Bar-Within, Beverley Gates, North-Bar-Without and then through Beverley Town Centre but regrouping for a quick drink at the Monks Walk Inn before walking the final 100m in unison to the beautiful Beverley Minster. Day 2 – 16 miles.
This National Trail highlights just some of the many beautiful scenes that East and North Yorkshire have to offer.
Let Becky know if you and your group are interested in some walks of any distance during your stay with us!
