Kirkham Abbey—Nth Yorks


Starting from the North Yorkshire village of Westow we travel west towards Howsham Woods where we then head south above the river to the picturesque village of Howsham with its grade 1 listed Jacobean Hall. We soon arrive at the River Derwent which we cross and follow towards the restored Howsham Mill on the opposite river bank. The mill will eventually produce electricity for the National Grid. We now head away from the river to Crambe Grange then northwards to Crambe village and its historic Norman church of St. Michael. Down hill from here and back over the river to Kirkham Priory in its magnificent setting next to the village. Here we will find the The Stone Trough inn for our lunch stop. After our lunch break we join the Centenary Way making our way through to the village of Firby and across the fields and woods for another walk along the river bank. After a while we leave the river for the last time heading towards the remote Church of St. Mary and finally back to Westow.
