Yorkshire Sculpture Park - 18th November 2012

Post  Admin on Sun Aug 12, 2012 8:40 pm

Sunday 18th November - Yorkshire Sculpture Park

This is an 8 mile walk which starts and ends in Emley, and takes us through Bretton Country Park where the Yorkshire Sculpture Park is situated. The book which the walk has come from describes it as “An unusual but most interesting walk through Bretton Country Park from the ancient village of Emley with its’ towering TV mast. The return leg passes ancient iron workings, created by Cistercian monks, before exploring the lovely landscaped grounds and free sculpture exhibitions in what was a grand country estate.” No great hills and an expected completion time of 4 and a half hours.

Details:-
Meet outside St Michael the Archangel church, Church Street, Emley, HD8 9R at 10.00 for 10.15 start. There is plenty of on street parking close by

I believe it is now £6 to park at Ysp. Didn't we talk about doing this walk a different way around to avoid the costly parking? I think we suggested starting at Emley village then walking down to Ysp having lunch there then walking back. Would that be possible?

Yes we did talk about parking at Emley. However, some people want to finish the walk off at YSP so they can look round it in their own time so I left it as it was.

Got to say though that £6 is a lot of money, especially if you're not sharing, so maybe a compromise would be to start at Emley and have a long dinner break?

If I remember rightly there is some free parking within a short walking distance of the P & D car park.

Yes, I remember seeing it. The only trouble with arranging to meet there though is getting a really good address for it that people can find. Also, it might just be full. Thanks for the suggestion though.
