Wakefield – a walking wonderland

in Nostell in Pontefract in Wakefield

When you think of walking in Yorkshire, you’re probably picturing wind-swept moors or the hills and valleys of the Dales. You’re probably not picturing an industrial heartland just off the M1. While we’re lucky to be surrounded by thousands of acres of incredible countryside in Yorkshire, you don’t have to go far from the towns and cities to find mini walking wonderlands ready to be explored.
