The Walk: Pull in at the lay-by on the busy A166 York to Driffield road and look for the trig pillar near the communications mast and covered reservoir. Tap it with the palm of your hand. Job done.

The Walk I Would Do: There is no walk to do. I would do as I have described above and be off. I would find my way to nearby Thixendale and do this Yorkshire Wolds walk.


Information: Bishop Wilton Wold is the highest point of the Yorkshire Wolds in the East Riding of Yorkshire, England. The summit, known as Garrowby Hill, lies about 5 miles (8 km) north of Pocklington. As with most of the wolds, it is wide, flat and agricultural in nature. The A166 road passes right by the top. However it is a Marilyn (having topographic prominence of at least 150m). There is a trig point, two covered reservoirs and an aerial. (Source: Wikipedia)
