About this book

The Yorkshire Wolds were brought to international attention in 2012 by David Hockney's magnificent Royal Academy exhibition of paintings of the region. Now, Tony Gowers' completely updated, expanded and re-designed National Trail Guide offers the essential companion to the forgotten but fascinating landscape through which this Trail runs. The Trail runs from Hessle in the south, by the Humber Bridge, to Filey on the North Yorkshire coast, through the Wolds' secluded and special 'dry valleys', a succession of tranquil villages, and past cel;ebrated locations like Thixendale woods now immortalised in Hockney's vast and dazzling paintings.

As well as comprehensive route descriptions accompanied by OS 1:25,000 maps, Yorkshire Wolds Way features a Philip Larkin Trail around Hull, digressions to the handsome town of Beverley with its beautiful Minster, the Holderness region made famous by Winfred Holtby's South Riding, the seabird colony at RSPB Bempton Cliffs, as well as circular walks to all of the principal locations of Hockney's Wolds paintings. The result is a n essential purchase, not just for those walking the Trail, but for every visitor to the area.
