HOMEPAGE Helmsley Area Scenes

HOMEPAGE for all of Phil and Molly's PicsRyedale Views of Helmsley, North Yorkshire

11. Helmsley to Rievaulx Abbey Walk


A good place to start is the cafe in the Walled Gardens and its array of plants for sale with the spectre of Helmsley Castle looming over the gardens. It is only a short walk from the main car park.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The cafe is housed in a sort of greenhouse itself!

 

 

You turn left out of the cafe and head on up the track towards Rievaulx Abbey.

 

On the way out of Helmsley there are great views back over the town and castle.

 

 

 

 

The tracks and paths to Rievaulx Abbey are well signposted and provide a most pleasant easy walk.

 

We passed a lovely little dog who was well equipped for a walking expedition.

 

 

Meeting the road down into Rievaulx from Helmsley.

 

 

The valley of Rievaulx.

 

Rievaulx Bridge.

 

 

Rievaulx Abbey first comes into sight as you walk along the Helmsley - Rievaulx road to Rievaulx.

 

 

 

 

Looking up Rievaulx valley.

 

A nice picnic area and a free car park

Lots more pictures of Rievaulx Abbey

As we were having a lovely picnic, in a most historic and meditative scene when the peace was shattered as an old DC3 flew over!
