Places on the Trail : East
The Yorkshire - North Sea route stretches from the village of Sprotbrough to
the great port of Kingston Upon Hull and the seaside
town of Hornsea. This map also covers the northern
extension route from Selby to York.
You will travel an amazing range of sights and scenes as the TPT
passes through the countryside, towns and cities of the North of
England from old railways and canals to riverside footpaths, woodland
bridleways, historic city streets and quiet country lanes.
|Places on the Trail
From Sprotbrough near Doncaster, the TPT follows peaceful riverside
and railway paths to Bentley. Traffic free paths and quiet lanes take
the TPT northwards through sleepy villages until it picks up the New
Junction Canal for several miles between the small villages of Braithwaite and Sykehouse. The route then follows minor lanes and farm tracks on
to Pollington and Snaith where walkers and cyclists routes then split
for much of the distance to Selby and beyond to the east, with walkers
on riverside footpaths and cyclists and horse riders on lanes. At the
town of Selby, in North Yorkshire, with its amazing abbey, there are
two TPT route options. A TPT extension goes north to the City of York using the York Selby railway path, whilst the TPT coast to coast route
continues eastwards through the quiet villages of the East
Riding of Yorkshire. On the coast to coast option walkers follow the winding
banks of the Rivers Ouse and Humber with cyclists and riders on lanes
nearby towards the foothills of the Yorkshire Wolds. Eventually the
TPT reaches the city of Hull and travels right through to King
George Dock where ferries link to Holland and Belgium. Steeped in rich maritime
history there is a lot to see and do in Hull, including
the Deep or following the fish trail through the city.
From Hull a TPT extension can be followed using the Hornsea railway
path. This leads to the large freshwater lake at Hornsea Mere and the
seaside town of Hornsea on the North Sea coast.
