Market Weighton - made for walking
On the 20th of March 2008 Market Weighton became the first accredited Walkers are Welcome town in East Yorkshire. Offering a great variety of short circular walks and longer linear walks, Market Weighton is an ideal base for experienced walkers and amblers to enjoy the excellent network of public paths and byways. Our walks are a perfect showcase of the local countryside, taking in the magnificent views of the western Yorkshire Wolds and the Vale of York.
Fun, Free and non-fattening
Our team of friendly walk leaders strive to give visiting walkers, old and new, a warm welcome in an atmosphere ideal for making new friends and bringing along old ones.
With both shorter easier walks and longer ones available, there's something for everyone.
