Welton

We went for a pre-Christmas walk to burn off some calories. We walked from Welton up Welton Dale then across to Elloughton Dale. We then finished off this  square route by walking back to Welton along the road. This short walk offers some attractive country walking and great views over the Humber and towards the Humberhead Levels.

Cycling on the Yorkshire Wolds

A Bank Holiday Monday gave me the perfect opportunity to get out my bike and ride through some beautiful Yorkshire Wolds countryside. My route took me through the villages of Huggate, Thixendale and Fimber. 

In Thixendale the village hall is opened as a cafe on Sundays. Refreshments are served to the many walkers and cyclists who visit the village. All proceeds go the upkeep of the village hall.

Preparations underway for Tour de Yorkshire visit to the Yorkshire Wolds

Communities around the Yorkshire Wolds are making preparations for the visit of the Tour de Yorkshire to the area on 2 May 2015. Having missed out on hosting a stage of the 2014 visit  of the Tour  de France to Yorkshire the event is being enthusiastically embraced with Yellow bikes and other symbols being put on display. These two photos were taken at Lund. The race is expected to go past village about 1pm on the 2nd.
