Your Own Back Yard

At the Heart of Yorkshire

Nature and Wildlife Trail

Whether you’re looking for an hour’s escape, a slow Sunday jaunt or an adventure off the beaten track, the Selby District, at the heart of Yorkshire, is an outdoor wonderland.

We live in a District filled with ancient woodlands, waterways, acres of lowland heath, nature reserves and a wealth of flora and fauna - all complemented by quiet country lanes, historic market towns and wide open spaces.

Make your own time for Selby District – downland the Nature and Wildlife Trail and enjoy (re) discovering what’s on the doorstep with this wonderful mix of gardens, woods and nature reserves.
