EAST COWICK CIRCULAR WALK

WHAT IS THE WALK?

This walk is unique in the area, because it is fully way-marked with 17 two-way signs.  This enables the walker to start at any one of the signs, go clockwise or anti-clockwise and arrive back at the starting point, without the need for a map and without fear of getting lost.

There is a mixture of pavement, country lanes, tracks, riverbank and a woodland section, plus there are splendid views of Cowick Church, Cowick Hall, Carlton Towers and the River Aire corridor.  A short spur of a quarter of a mile connects the trail to Snaith Ponds, a haven for wildlife on the riverbank. 

HOW LONG IS THE WALK?

The walk is 4 miles long and we suggest you take you allow 2 hours, which should give you time to enjoy the surroundings.  The recommended link to SNAITH PONDS, will add just 15 minutes to your journey. 

WHO CREATED THE WALK?

The East Cowick Circular Walk was created by The Vale of Snaith Walkers Are Welcome Team with funding from Goole Windfarm Community Fund and Ramblers Holidays Charitable Trust.
