Summary: The White Rose Way is a 104 miles long distance footpath in England which runs from Leeds, West Yorkshire to Scarborough, North Yorkshire. It was created in 2011 by local author Paul Brown. The walk starts at the foot of the Black Prince Statue in Leeds City Square with the finish line being at the harbour-side Tourist Information Centre in the South Bay, Scarborough. The walk links existing trails with little used footpaths, passing through suburbs of Leeds to quickly enter linked park land and into the grounds of Harewood House. The Wharfe Valley follows, leading to the market town of Wetherby, and on to the agricultural plains of the Vale of York via Boston Spa and Tadcaster. The walk passes through Fulford and Kexby and up the River Derwent into Stamford Bridge. The Derwent Valley is followed in to Malton and Thornton le Dale. The North York Moors National Park is traversed through Wykeham and Dalby Forest to the hamlet of Harwood Dale. The walk pushes on to Cloughton before following the Cleveland Way for the last few miles in to Scarborough. (Source: Wikipedia)

Note: At Low Marishes between Thornton Dale and Ryton please keep to the permissive path as there have been occasions of walking into a private drive. See attached PDF.
