Sanctuary Way Walking Trail

Address

Minster Road RIPON North Yorkshire HG4 1QT

The Sanctuary Way in Ripon is a way-marked trail that tours the city of Ripon tracing the original boundary of the area of Sanctuary granted to the settlement in 937AD.

In 2005 a new walking trail was created around the city touring new sanctuary markers around the city.  There are three versions of the route with lengths between 4 and ten miles.  As well as the new markers, a number of interpretation boards have been installed along the route to share some of the fascinating stories behind the city of Ripon.

The full circuit of the Sanctuary explores the rural edges of Ripon, crossing rivers, farmland and a nature reserve with several possible picnic spots along the route.

To accompany the route a written guide and map was produced, which you can download here.
