Bishop Wood Selby
This walk explores the woodland trails in the expansive Bishop Wood near Selby, Cawood and Wistow.
The woods are located just a few miles north west of Selby. You can start the walk from the parking area of Scalm Lane. Then pick up a series of flat footpaths taking you around the northern part of the ancient woodland. The trails make for particularly fine autumn woodland walk and there are pretty bluebells to see in the spring months too. Look out for a variety of woodland birds and wildflowers in the warmer seasons.

As you'd expect the woods are ideal for dog walking so you'll probably see other owners on your visit.
