From time to time, there will inevitably be disruptions when undertaking a walk of this length. There may be bridges down, earthworks, temporary blockages or diversions. This page will be kept up to date with known instances of this kind. Please refer to it before commencing the walk and let us know of any difficulties encountered through the ‘Contact Us’ page.
Current Updates (as of 3/10/17)
Page 21 Para 4. The only signpost remaining at this location is a public footpath sign.
Page 36. Para 1 of the route. The road bridge in Tadcaster collapsed in the floods of winter 2015. It was re-opened in February 2017. The route is now unaffected.
Page 43. The S.P. here is now missing. The diagonal path across the field towards the A64 is now a gravel path. It now has a new wooden gate to pass through.
Page 44. The S.P. (Public Footpath. Fulford Main Street. Millennium Way) just after the dip and after the small stream, has disappeared. Turn right just after the often dry stream and away from the River Ouse here, walking with the stream on your right and the post and wire fence on your left.
The Gateway to York Hotel at Kexby (as seen on the internet) no longer exists as a hotel as it is now the Riverside Care Home.
At this time, despite what you may find on the internet, there is NO accommodation in the centre of Stamford Bridge itself. The Riverside Hotel, Bar and Bistro is no more. If you know differently, please contact us.
Page 53. Between Stamford Bridge and Buttercrambe the missing footbridge over Barlam Beck has finally been replaced by a brand new footbridge. The bridge was officially named The White Rose Way Footbridge at a ceremony on 1st June 2013 and a plaque affixed to the structure. (See last 6 photographs in Gallery).
Page 62. Second para from bottom. The stile has just been refurbished. It shows as a 'no through route', but our path turns off before the restriction, so just go over and follow the instructions given in the book.
Page 71. The landowner of Hardwick Farm applied at Scarborough Magistrates Court on 27/4/12 to divert the public footpath from going through his farmyard. The path is diverted a short distance to the right and then left to emerge onto the tarmac road to the right of St.Margaret's Church. Diversion signs are in place.
Page 71 and 72. There are very minor diversions at Burgate Farm and Ellis Close. Follow the signs, it only makes a few yards difference.
Page 79. The T.I.C. building at the South Bay (the finish line) is closed and currently up for sale. I will negotiate with the new owners to leave the finish line plaque there.
