A big thank you to all our sponsors and partners.
The Market Weighton Canal Trail is about 11.5 miles long and provides access to a unique and unspoilt north-south corridor, traversing rich farmland connecting the Yorkshire Wolds Way at Market Weighton, with the Trans Pennine Trail at the Weighton Lock.
Enjoy a leisurely walk, or a spot of fishing whilst engaging with a wealth of wildlife and history along the whole route.
The trail connects the iron age settlements of old with eighteenth century canal locks and the surrounding habitat. Two areas of particular interest to nature lovers can be found at the Washlands in Broomfleet and the North Cave Wetlands nature reserve, (just a short, signposted, detour from the trail). Visitors can also have fun trying to find and use all the trails' rubbing posts. Pack a crayon and some paper.
A big thank you to all National Lottery players for helping fund this wonderful project.
