About

Walk the Valley of the Kings with our new trail charting the course of the Gypsey Race as it carves its route through the Great Wold Valley. The winterbourne stream flows on chalk which gives it its will o' the wisp character: now you see me, now you don't - when it disappears underground for spells only to pop up unannounced elsewhere. Our Neolithic and Bronze Age ancestors found it fascinating and built their great burial mounds and monuments along its course which pepper this trail from Duggleby Howe to Bridlington.
