The Wolds Way – Part 3 – South Cave to Market Weighton

For the final two parts of our trip to Yorkshire, we decided for the third day to start from our base in South Cave, a delightful village’ish, complete with mock castle, golf course and a belter of a pub, the Fox and Coney, on the High Street. Later (and another post), for the final part, we were to start from the end point of the Way, and retreat back into the countryside.

What struck me about this route, was that while I couldn’t readily see any mountains, let alone hills, we were always up and down, up and down, all day! 

The start strikes into a beautiful small valley, that overlooks a vineyard!  Yes, a vineyard in Yorkshire (there are others), the Little Wold Vineyard, which is on my to do later list.

From there, there were many rolling hills, and a lush and cold countryside, but no opportunities for a cuppa or something to eat; the only drawback to the day.

Until we made Market Weighton, and a well-earned late, lunch.  For which we were grateful, during these COVID days.  The pub in question was The Griffin, a much-needed Thwaites public house.
