Here you can read a personal account of the route for this stage, together with route maps centred around the start and end points, and information on transport connections, pubs, accommodation and camp sites. You can see a photo gallery, browse through the walk stages, and you can use Google search to look up the start and end points of your day's walking. For some sections, GPX files for your sat nav are available, but this new feature is under development, so please don't blame me if you get lost!

ThumbnailLeaving Barmby, the trail once again follows the north bank of the river, before entering the small town of Selby, where there is ample opportunity to replenish rucksacks and beer reserves. Here, the route finally leaves the river but follows Selby canal for a while, before heading due south alongside the railway near Selby airfield. After a few twists and turns, the trail eventually reaches Temple Hirst, closely followed by Hirst Courtney. There's a couple of pubs around here, and the Royal Oak and Sloop Inn both do camping, but once again accommodation is limited unless you are prepared to travel.
