Thirsk and Sowerby Past and Present is a town and countryside trail that has been designed by the local community.
A leaflet with a map and walkers’ guide to find the explanatory boards around the town is available in the Tourist Information Centre and for DOWNLOAD HERE.
A short section of the footpath is temporarily closed until December 2015 so please also DOWNLOAD the alternative path.

It takes in 12 sites of historical and environmental interest. The route is circular, flat and approximately 3 miles long, but may be shortened (alternative routes are indicated on the leaflet).

In total there are 15 interpretation boards that extend from the centre of Thirsk and include such sites as Thirsk Castle, the old Mill Race and a prehistoric burial mound.
