Walks from Season Three - Solar System (York to Naburn)
Just one part of the massive Trans Pennine Trail, this walk between York and the village of Riccall is perfect for children as it is flat throughout... and has the added benefit of having scale models of the Solar System along the way...

And for the railway enthusiasts, there's history as the route was once part of the East Coast Main Line.

If you've done this walk, we'd love to see your photos and videos.  Share them with us on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram.
