Bishop Wood

Bishop Wood is a large, peaceful wood a few minutes’ drive from Selby, North Yorkshire, Sherburn in Elmet and South Milford. There is free parking and the main paths are wide and flat. Some were a bit muddy but otherwise it is gentle terrain for disabled people or those wanting a relaxing walk. Would be good for cyclists.

You can have a nice walk around Bishop Wood, but you usually need your good wellies! Good for those whose kids like to splash in lots of mud!
