Wharram Percy circular – including a visit to the deserted Medieval Village. YO17 9TD
FREE car park.
The walk from the car park to the medieval village is steep in places, with kissing gates and across fields (with cattle) so more suited to a carrier than a pram.
There is a deserted church, millpond, bridge and the remains of some houses.
Nice place for a picnic on a fine day.
Options to make a longer walk – head back to the road, turn right and walk along the road until you get to a 90 degree bend, here there’s a sign post to follow the Centenary way. You keep on this path, passing a wood on your right and barley fields. After a long walk past the barley field, at the metal gate you turn right at the wolds way marker across the top of Deep Dale and along to descend into Wharram Percy. Through it and then on the path back up to the car park.
