East Yorkshire and Derwent Area Ramblers

walking to protect our local countryside

The weather proved to be better than the forecast so the select band of 4 walkers plus leader Chris Bush were able to enjoy the walk in mainly dry weather.

Spring flowers and blossoms were at their best.

At Howsham Mill the Archimedes screw turbine was working, and it was good to see the restored mill which had been abandoned in 1947 (built in 1755 to mill flour) but was finally restored to its former glory in 2013.
