Molescroft/Beverley, Market Weighton, Bishop Burton and Walkington


I've put this route together using well established paths including The Hudson Way, High Hunsley Walk, Wilberforce Way, Yorkshire Wolds Way and the Beverley Twenty. The walk is not difficult and should be achievable by anyone with experience of walking twenty miles.

The stretch between Beverley and Market Weighton is relatively flat with the return route to Beverley also not being too difficult. The route is simple to follow using a standard OS map, with many option for refreshments along the way, whilst passing through some of the area's villages and larger towns (Beverley, Market Weighton and Bishop Burton). 

The walk starts off at a public car park on the outskirts of Molescroft, Beverley and heads along the Hudson Way route (The Hudson Way is a fantastic path for cyclists).

* The Hudson Way from Beverley to Market Weighton
Upon reaching a road junction that can be taken to Goodmanham (well worth a visit) at Ref: SE900426 the Hudson Way carries onto Market Weighton, however by taking the road out of Goodmanham and follow the Yorkshire Wold Way path South East will start the return route back to Beverley.

By following the footpath to Newbald Lodge (now joining the High Hunsley Curcuit) and heading to Bishop Burton the route continues to Walkington and then following the Beverley Twenty route onto the Beverley Westwood to Molescroft. There are a few routes back to the starting location, however it's worth following the main town streets as detailed in the route map for the most clear direct route.
