Yorkshire Wolds Route Attractions
A route leads from York through the delightful scenery of the North Yorkshire Moors and the Yorkshire Wolds, which rise to heights of up to 800ft/244m, to the North East Coast. Formerly this was a vast sheep-grazing region, with only a thin covering of poor soil over the underlying limestone. Recently, however, the soil has been improved and broad swaths of land have become fertile cornfields, variegated by white crags of rock, attractive clumps of woodland and avenues of tall trees.
Stamford Bridge, England
The A166 leads to Stamford Bridge, a tiny village whose claim to fame unfortunately rests on the last great victory of the Saxons, the battle in 1066 in which Harold defeated his brother Tostig and King Harold Hardrada of Norway, who had sailed up the Humber.Stamford Bridge has several noted landmarks including the Corn Mill, completed in 1591 and the Viaduct, which opened in 1847.
Bridlington to Whitby - Coast Road
From the seaside resort of Bridlington a beautiful coast road leads north and can be followed all the way to Whitby and beyond over the North York Moors, with occasional glimpses of the coast.
