Our readers showcase the diverse landscapes in the countryside of East Yorkshire

The Yorkshire Wolds may not be as famous as the Yorkshire Dales and North York Moors National Parks, but that doesn’t mean that this part of Yorkshire is any less beautiful.

There are plenty of great walks in the area, not the least the 79 mile Yorkshire Wolds Way that runs from Hessle to Filey.

You can witness whole range of landscapes in the Yorkshire Wolds, from the high point of Garrowby Hill, just outside Bishop Wilton that will give fine views for miles; to the iconic cliffs of Flamborough and Bempton.

Further afield on the edges of the Wolds are the flat lands of the Vale of York in the west and the Vale of Pickering in the north that separates it from the North York Moors.

There are also many pretty villages and market towns such as Bishop Burton, Pocklington and Market Weighton, the largest town in the Wolds is Driffield, the location of the famous annual agricultural show.
