Two walks were held as part of The Yorkshire Wolds Walking & Outdoor Festival.  The Vale of Snaith Ramble, a 12 mile circular, attracted walkers from Harrogate, Hessle, Beverley and Louth.   A small group enjoyed a gentle Heritage walk around Snaith and Cowick.

JULY       A small group of walkers followed The Trans Pennine Trail Southbound from Snaith Station and reached the canal at Cowick where they spent time watching the boats sailing along.  It was a very pleasant morning.  The walk was part of the 30th anniversary celebrations for The Trans-Pennine Trail.  SEE photos on our gallery page.

The next opportunity to walk the trail will be on Sunday  18th August, when we will be walking NORTHBOUND from the Station 10am to 12 noon.

JUNE     We have launched  EAST COWICK CIRCULAR WALK    Full details on the dedicated page.

 Simone Severn is promoting walking in and around Carlton.  She is working hard to re-establish rights of way and better sign posting.

She is hoping more people will get out and walk, enjoy the countryside and help to keep the footpaths open for the future.

Simone's favourite walk, Carlton to Drax is featured on our OTHER LOCAL WALKS page.

APRIL 1st    Our first two Blue Plaques are now in place.

Our grant application to Snaith & Cowick Council has been accepted, enabling us to  start enhancing The Snaith Heritage Trail with Blue Plaques.

It has been announced that Le Tour de Yorkshire will be coming through The Vale of Snaith on  Thursday 2nd May.   It will enter The Vale on the western side at Balne and will travel through Pollington, Snaith, Cowick, Rawcliffe and Airmyn.    Interestingly this stage is called The Heritage Stage, which could well be a nod to our HERITAGE WALKS.

The AGM of The Vale of Snaith Action Group was held on Thursday 10th January at Snaith & Cowick Town Council office, Market Place Snaith

The Ramblers have launched an interesting article about walking and talking - for mental; well-being.
