A NEW walking guide to some of the most spectacular scenery in North Yorkshire has gone on sale in libraries around the county and online.

The guide has been produced to mark the official reopening this year of the Centenary Way, which runs from York Minster to Filey Brigg, taking in the Howardian Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Castle Howard, and the historic market town of Malton.

The Centenary Way was originally opened in 1989 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the creation of the old North Riding County Council.

The guidebook, which is on sale for £4 in libraries and online through Amazon, was written by John Sparshatt, chair of the Long Distance Walkers Association and a countryside volunteer for North Yorkshire County Council.

“The Centenary Way provides a gateway to walkers, whether they undertake the whole route or try out shorter sections,” he said.

“I hope that the new guide will provide easy to follow instructions and introduce some new locations that the original route bypassed.”

The guidebook can also be downloaded as a free, printable e-book from northyorks.gov.uk/article/24056/Long-distance-walks
