River Ouse

River Ouse

East Yorkshire

Route: River Ouse Ramble

Area: East Yorkshire

Date of walk: 27th October 2013

Walkers: Andrew

Distance: 6.7 miles

Ascent: 100 feet

I parked in the remote village of Laxton, next to St Peter’s Church.

I walked out of the village along a deserted country lane, and on reaching Saltmarshe I joined the Trans Pennine Trail

The Trail runs along the top of the flood defence barrier on the north bank of the River Ouse. The terrain is completely flat for miles around, though this doesn’t mean that it’s boring – there’s still plenty to see, and the big landscape has a unique quality to it

After walking along the river bank for about two miles, I headed back inland at Yokefleet, and made my way back to Laxton along quiet lanes

The weather had been sunny but very windy and it was hard to hold the camera steady at times
