Circular walk Market Weighton to Goodmanham, East Yorkshire
The walk began at Market Weighton, a small market town in
East Yorkshire at the foot of the Yorkshire Wolds.The town is the birthplace
of William Bradley in 1787, Britain's tallest recorded man at 7 ft 9 ins, who was
exhibited around the country in a freak show.
The area has many paths, some being former
railway lines, but locals were able to point us in the right direction to the
village of Goodmanham, where we ate our picnic lunch.However, had we known about the pub, the
Goodmanham Arms, and the cafe, The Fiddle Drill, we wouldn’t have bothered
carrying food and drink with us.
is also the 12th century All Hallows church which is said to have
been built on the site of a pagan temple and a microbrewery of the same name.
We returned along yet another disused railway
track with interesting benches, sculptures and an ancient well dedicated to St Helen.
Next to the well is a tree with different coloured ribbons tied to it, said
to bring good luck and good health to the person offering a portion of cloth. I
had nothing with me that I could attach.
