The Best Winter Walks in Yorkshire
Getting out and about in the countryside is one of the best things that we can do to help our mental health, particularly this winter when the world can sometimes feel overwhelming. The winter months can cause depression for many people, so learning ways to combat this is good.
One of the most beautiful places in England to enjoy the fresh air of the countryside is Yorkshire. So wrap up warm in Shamrock Gift Aran sweaters and grab your walking boots, ready to explore this picturesque part of the world this winter…
For a walk that will get your blood really pumping, Whernside is a great walk. Walk across three peaks of Yorkshire where you will be rewarded with glorious views of the Yorkshire Dales, as well as the fantastic Ribblehead viaduct.
For something a little less strenuous, the railway trail is a lovely 3-mile walk. The beautiful wintery valleys around the Hebden bridge are stunning at this time of the year, and you will also walk through Walshaw woods which are the home of lots of species of wildlife.
For dramatic views of the sea in the winter, there is nowhere better than the Yorkshire coast walk. Salburn is the place to go for this walk – at under 5 miles it takes in a lot without being too strenuous. Head along the coast path and you will see Guibal fanhouse, built to commemorate the industrial heritage of the local area.
