Yorkshire Wolds Way

For 79 miles/127km, the Yorkshire Wolds Way runs from Hessle, near Hull, to Filey. It passes through the Yorkshire Wolds, a part of the country that's rather overshadowed by other parts of Yorkshire, but that's well worth a visit.

In July 2018 I walked it with a man called Tal, over five days. And this is the story.
