Yorkshire Ouse Walk

100 km / 62 miles

N Yorkshire
From its humble source north-west of York, the Yorkshire Ouse winds its way gently through over 50 miles of fine countryside. It swallows up streams from picturesque dales and steadily swells until it unites with the River Trent to become the mighty Humber and sweeps into the North Sea.

Formed from renaming of the River Ure at Cuddy Shaw Reach, upstream of Linton-on-Ouse, the Ouse flows through the City of York, then Selby and Goole, joining with the River Trent at Trent Falls, near the village of Faxfleet, to form the Humber Estuary. The Ure and Ouse and their many tributaries drain much of Yorkshire Dales and North York Moors, with the Ouse itself crossing the flat plains, forming the last section of this river system before Trent Falls. With some planning to select suitably placed river crossing, and especially as the Ouse valley is prone to serious flooding, it is possible to follow the line of most of the Ouse on public rights of way, either on or near the riverbanks. Other LDPs follow parts of the Ouse, principally the Ebor Way at York, and from Selby to the estuary the Trans Pennine Trail uses the Ouse riversides en route to Hull.

The listed book is a guide to the Ouse and its surroundings, providing some fascinating details of river history and events that have occurred around it. Divided into ten sections, ranging in distance between four and eight miles, it includes a guide to public transport and lists pubs and other places for refreshment.
