Description
  • One of the most popular walks in East Yorkshire, this route contains no villages, no shops, no pubs and no roads.  Escape from everyday life by walking along ancient highways, along field headlands, past an old farming hamlet and along farm tracks.
  • The interest in the walk is provided by the rural Wolds.  The scenery is not spectacular but relaxing; you walk through a working landscape, past woodlands and by hedgerows rich in wild flowers and bird song with only the occasional tractor for company.
  • The track leading westwards from the green past Nut Wood is Low road, and is in fact an old ancient awarded public highway. 
  • For a short stroll, why not just walk round the wooded area itself? 
  • On the walk east of Wauldby Green you pass along a fairly busy road for a mile, so please take care.  You then walk around the golf course and walk on field headlands and tracks.  You return to Wauldby along the ancient highway.

Further Information
Features of Interest
-  Wauldby Green is a popular spot with local people, especially in winter months when children and adults enjoy the thrill of tobogganing down the large grassy slope.   
 
-  Wauldby was once a hamlet and 100 years ago had a population of 86.  The small chapel, which served the spiritual needs of the hamlet, was rebuilt in 1853.  (It now stands on private land.) 
 
-  The golf course to the east of the walk is called Hessle Golf Course, even though the village of Hessle is 4 miles away!  The old Hessle Golf Course stood on the site of the Humber Bridge car park and approach roads, and moved to its present site in the 1970s.
