The Yorkshire Wolds Way is the first of the National Trail walks in England and Wales to be totally stile free, now there are just gates or gaps along all 79 of its miles.
Malcolm Hodgson, National Trails Officer for the Yorkshire Wolds Way said: “This is fantastic news for many of our users. We have always known it is a good trail for access because it has so few steps. Now that the last stile has gone we can encourage people of all abilities to venture onto the trail and discover the stunning beauty of the Yorkshire Wolds.”
The celebrated loss of the last stile is the result of dedicated work by North Yorkshire and the East Riding of Yorkshire County Councils and follows a route diversion at Muston where, with the welcome support of the local landowner, a potentially dangerous road section of trail has been diverted onto adjoining farmland.
