Artist-led walk Carolyn Thompson

Aimed at local artists who may want to integrate walking and being inspired by walking into their practice (including information on identification and recording)

Walk description:

Starting at Pickering Library, this walk will take in both town and countryside, woodland, fields and Pickering Beck. There are some short, sharp inclines through the woods, a stile or two to climb, and the going can get muddy underfoot after heavy rainfall, so please where suitable walking footwear. A short part of this walk is on a road where there is no path. Unfortunately, this walk is not suitable for dogs due to the styles and crossing fields that contain livestock. Approximately 2 hours.

To register for a place on this walk please email

This walk is part of Unfolding Origins, a Chrysalis Arts Development project in partnership with North Yorkshire County Record Office and funded by Arts Council England and National Lottery Heritage Fund. The walk is therefore fully funded and free to participants.
