PUBLISHED: 00:00 01 July 2020 | UPDATED: 08:49 01 July 2020
We looked through our archives to see what we recommended to you in previous years during July. NOTE: Safeguarding against the coronavirus is likley to be a part of everyday life for the forseeable future. We advise that two metres social distancing and checking the latest guidelines are the best course of action.
July 2019 issue
Take a walk through the Calder Valley from Hebden Bridge, passing by one of the most iconic landmarks in West Yorkshire, the Stoodley Pike monument.
July 2018 issue
Avoid the crowds at the beach for the time being and explore the beautiful countryside inland and close to Scarborough.
Ravenscar and Hayburn Wyke
July 2017 issue
Ravenscar is one coastal location where you won’t find crowds. Once mooted as a resort to rival the famous Yorkshire favourites, but those plans never came to fruition.
Barden Moor and Embsay Reservoir
July 2016 issue
This walk makes use of the Bolton Abbey Estate’s Barden Moor Access Area and although some of it is on public rights of way, other sections make use of access land and permissive paths which can be closed for shooting later on in the summer.
July 2015 issue
With the Yorkshire Dales and North York Moors the most popular destinations for walkers, the Wolds are often overlooked. In these times, avoiding the popular spots is possibly the preferred option.
July 2014 issue
Another walk exploring the area inland from Scarborough, this time we head to the Forge Valley, starting from the twin villages of East and West Ayton.
All the routes were correct at the time of publication, over time access to certain parts of the walk may be subject to change. We advise you acquire a recent OS map of the area you plan to visit and assure there are no major changes.
