The full Foss Walk – first half Easingwold to Farlington

23rd June 2017 Easingwold

A 15 mile walk starting in Easingwold led by Bob Jowett.

The “Foss Walk” was created in the 1980’s by Mark Jones and Michael Fife with encouragement from Bill Sessions, a well known local printer and publisher. North Yorkshire footpath officers provided advice and assistance. An illustrated guide by Mark Jones complete with hand drawn maps and superb sketches was also produced: sadly it is now out of print, though second-hand copies can be found.

The “Foss Walk” starts at the Blue Bridge in York close to where the Foss runs into the Ouse and finishes in the market place in Easingwold; a distance of 28.5 miles. It is not often walked and its way marking is not good in many places, although there are a few nice wooden sign posts to be found.


Public transport is not readily available in much of this area, so access is by car and we either do circular walks or leave cars at both ends of a linear walk. Bob Jowett, who leads most of the walks, may well be able to arrange a lift for walkers without transport.

More details will be published nearer the time, but meanwhile if you want to know more, contact Bob. (01904 764702)
