Welton Wolds Way Walk

Posted 13/5/2017

Our party of 13 adults and 1 carried child enjoyed a lovely 7.4 mile walk in the Yorkshire Wolds from the picture-postcard village of Welton.

We followed the Yorkshire Wolds Way from Welton via Welton Dale, making a slight detour through the woods to the Raikes Mausoleum, which was built in 1818 for Robert Raikes.

Our walk continued northwards before rounding Turtle Hill and then headed west towards Brantingham with us being subjected to some light rain.

Lunch was taken during a break in the rain showers and we then continued past Long Plantation before making our way back to Welton via South Wold Plantation and High Road, which gave views of the River Humber from a plateau above the A63.

Well done to everyone who completed this stunning walk.


Finally a big hello to Topsy Allman, Stuart Cliff and Sue Case who all walked with DVWG for the first time today.
