Womersley Wander Walk

Posted 13/1/2018

A well-attended local walk today for DVWG completing the Womersley Wander walk, which is a walk published by North Yorkshire County Council which DVWG last walked in early 2013.

The walk crossed Womersley Park to the village of Little Smeaton and then walked on footpaths along the River Went to the outskirts of Norton, here we saw Prior Farm which had remaining medieval buildings which were part of the original monastery on the site of the farm.

Our walk continued to Walden Stubs and alongside Birdswing Woods before walking alongside Womersley Beck back into the village to complete our walk.

Our afternoon was completed with a friendly drink and a chat for the assembled group at the Shoulder of Mutton at Kirk Smeaton.

Well done to the sixteen people who completed this 7.5 miles local walk, a big welcome goes out to Sue White and Terry Sinar who walked with DVWG for the first time today.
