Many of the most appealing green spaces come with views of the River Ouse and the city itself, with popular choices including Clarence Gardens, Hull Road, Rowntree and West Bank. Dean’s Park is especially popular, due to its proximity to the Minster and the city centre shops. If you have a car and are prepared to travel a little outside of York, then a number of further options present themselves, such as the stately grounds of Stewart’s Burnby Hall in nearby Pocklington, Beningbrough Hall in the neighbouring village of Beningbrough, and Burton Agnes Hall in the Driffield area. Close to Selby and around 35 minutes to the south, the Yorkshire Garden World is a real highlight for those with green fingers.

Things to do in North Yorkshire
History[ edit ] Positioned on the shores of a glacial lake at the end of the last Ice Age , Pickering was in an ideal place for early settlers to benefit from the multiple natural resources of the moorlands to the north, the wetlands to the south, running water in the beck and the forests all around. It had wood, stone, wildfowl , game, fish, fresh water and fertile easily worked soils. The east—west route from the coast passed along the foothills of the North York Moors through the site at a place where the beck could be forded.
Legendary sources suggest an early date for the establishment of a town but traces of earlier settlements have been erased by subsequent development. According to the Domesday Book there was enough arable land for 27 ploughs, meadows and extensive woodlands. The town may have grown up to service the Norman castle.

Despite a lower than normal attendance some 25 vehicles appeared during the course of the morning ranging from a Bedford HA van to a Peterbilt American unit. Most people enjoyed a great breakfast in the Truck Stop cafe and plenty of conversation afterwards before drifting off their separate ways. Our thanks to Whitwood Truckstop for allowing us to use their facilities.
Alwin Harrison Part of the lineup at Whitwood. First meeting back in Leeds after the summer break, with a planned showing of the DVD of this year’s Trans-Pennine Run, kindly prepared and delivered on time by David Joy. On the way to the meeting through central Leeds, I caught up with a long tailback of traffic where there usually isn’t one. On eventually reaching the front of the queue, it turned out to be a road resurfacing job, requiring a road closure.
The diversion led to more chaos, and I eventually arrived at the meeting about forty minutes late. This was rather unfortunate, as I had the aforementioned DVD in my pocket, so on reaching our meeting room, I was greeted by the night’s entertainment in full swing, with Peter Seaword, who had kindly agreed to bring along his DVD projector, already showing a selection of images of past Trans-Pennine Runs from to taken by Roy Dodsworth.
Even though these pictures were taken only about five or six years ago, it was noticeable how many are now with different owners, and often in different liveries. With what time remained, we would not have been able to show the DVD so we carried on for the rest of the evening with Roy’s images followed by a taster of something Peter is currently working on.
Peter has a vast collection of photos and literature relating to road transport, and has researched many Yorkshire road transport related businesses and is at present working on a presentation of the history of South Yorkshire Motors of Pontefract.

Splitting them into three phases, the earliest Phase I area Iron Age covered acres; Phase II was extended over acres; and Phase 3 extended the enclosure over another acres. A further extension of earthworks appears to have occurred, but Wheeler believed them to have been constructed at a much later period.
In the introduction to his work, Mortimer briefly mentioned the finding of some chariot burials found close by, though less certain is the exact spot where these important remains came from. Near by large iron hoops were found. A stretch of the eastern side still stands up boldly beside the road from Stanwick Church to the former Stanwick Hall, but a large part of this side has been demolished for the making of the road, and some dumps of earth immediately east of Church Lodge may be a result of this process.
