The Wolds Way – Part 2 – Sykes Churches

Interesting that, I’d never heard of this area before we decided to do it due to a recommendation from a fellow traveler.  Lucky, we referenced the very excellent, Yorkshire Wolds Way; Tony Gowers and Roger Ratcliffe, 2013, and with their recommendation, sought out this day trip, that can be done, preferably, by car. 

We started from our base in South Cave, and then after a stop for breakfast in Market Weighton, also a good opportunity to have a wander and to see the village of the tallest man ever in the UK, William Bradley.  Try the steps in the High Street, where you can compare your shoes with his!

From here, we traveled to Kirkburn, to see St Mary’s.

After which, we went to Garten on the Wolds to see St Michael and All Angels, that was a strange mixture between Norman and Gothic styles.

And then to Wetwang, to visit St Nicholas.

And finally, lo surprises!, when encountering Sledmore House, a delightful (even in the start of the cold season), house, farm and café, where there were numerous people, bicyclists and a farm shop, where we partook of needless shopping.

From here it was a drive back up to Scotland.
