Pathways to Heath
To help people get out and about walking in their local communities North Yorkshire County Council have created seven 'pathways to health' walks in Selby, varying in distance from just over a mile to more challenging routes of up to nine miles.
If you're nervous about getting out and about, or you don't feel confident enough to go for a walk alone yet, you can join a guided health walk in the Selby area. Health walks are led by a qualified walk leader and range in length from 30 minutes to an hour.
Health walks are a great way to get started, to stretch your legs, meet new people and get some fresh air in your local community. Health walks are free to join and you don't need any specialist equipment, just comfortable shoes. If you'd like to join a health walk in Selby please email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
Hidden Heritage Walks
Each of the five walk leaflets, located below, has a descriptive narrative, images of objects that can be seen along the walk, and a map to follow. Although these walks were devised some time ago, and so some of the landmarks have changed, they still provide an insightful and historical stroll around the area.
The five topics covered are:
Selby Canal - Industrial heritage and modern leisure - pdf
Signs and Symbols - Unlocking the hidden meanings of shopfront signs - pdf
20th Century Selby - Highlighting the variety and meaning of modern buildings standing in Selby - pdf
