Walk Description

This is a nice and easy walk for all the family of all ages. It takes in the wonderful Market Town of Beverley as well as the open pastures of the Beverley Westwood.

The walk starts from the magnificent grounds of the iconic Beverley Minster walking through the town and onto Keldgate past the glorious array of houses before crossing over onto Queensgate and then the Westwood itself. This open space on the edge of Beverley is a popular spot for families and dog walkers. You’ll often see kites being flown, picnics being enjoyed and and walkers exploring the area. One thing to note is the cattle of the Westwood that roam free on the pastures throughout the summer months so dogs should be kept on leads in this area and drivers should take caution.

Walk towards the old windmill which forms part of Beverley Golf Clubhouse. Veering away from the road towards the clubhouse and Keldgate Road before heading towards the imposing but impressive old Blackmill. Don’t worry being on the golf course too much, it is right to roam land, just avoid the balls and interrupting the players enjoying the game. From the Blackmill head towards the northwest corner of the Westwood. Following a clear track through Burton Bushes you will emerge out near Burton Gate House and near Beverley Racecourse where you can take the road back up towards the town. At the T junction, take a right through the Beverley Bar into the aptly named North Bar Within. Enjoy the hustle and bustle of town life as you stroll through the cobbled streets back towards the towering Minster.
