I try to provide as much variety as possible in the walks articles I write for Yorkshire Ridings Magazine. Last month's article was a countryside walk around Sutton Bank in the North York Moors with long distance views, and some climbing. In contrast, this walk is virtually flat, and includes an attractive town and the surrounding common land. It offers a circuit of Beverley Westwood starting from the town centre. Beverley is one of those towns which appears to have avoided ugly moden redevelopment of its town centre. The walk links the attractive streets of the town centre with the racecourse and the Westwood. It finishes close to Beverley minster, one of the most impressive gothic churches in the country.
I took the photographs for the walk on a day of mixed sunshine and cloud - generally more cloud than sunshine. There is an attractiveview over the town centre an Minster from the Westwood. With the right light, it would stand out as a photograph. I spent some time waiting near the golf clubhouse hoping for better light, and was finally rewarded when one of the bright patches caught the town centre, and then the West front of the Minster.
I felt that this was the best image among those I submitted, and was pleased to see that the editor chose to print it across two pages as the featured image for the article.
