Description
  • To reach Goodmanham with ease take the "Monkey Run" footpath alongside the old station cottages on Londesborough Road.  The path follows the former mill race, now dry, to Goodmanham Road.  Two buildings of interest are All Saints Church and the Goodmanham Arms with its micro-brewery; it depends on whether your aims are spiritual or spirituous!
  • At the top of the hill, a narrow lane leads down into Goodmanham Dale (a gap in the Wolds) to the disused railway.  Owned by East Riding of Yorkshire Council and managed as a recreational trail, the Hudson Way is a haven for wildlife.  Follow the lane and trail back to Market Weighton.
