M62 Junction 37 riverside dog walk, Yorkshire


One of the glories of this dog walk on the Trans-Penine Trail is that there are no hills, or even slopes, and the path stays firm and shoe-friendly in wet weather.


Refreshments at the Ferryboat Inn (01430 430300). Open daily 1200-2300. Food served daily 1200-2100. Dog water provided, but only Guide Dogs are allowed inside the pub. Dogs are welcome in the garden area. Carvery £5.00. We didn't try this, it looked depressing and sad from the outside.


Starting from Boothferry Bridge. Cross the stile in the right hand corner of the car park and turn right. Walk up the bank and over another stile to join the Trans-Pennine Trail. Go under the ferry bridge, taking care to keep dogs away from the lifting machinery, towards a small group of houses. The broad footpath runs between the houses and the river and then opens out so that there are fields on the right and the river on the left.  Keep walking on this long-distance trail to your own half-way point, and then turn round to retrace the route back to the car park.
