Centenary Way given new lease of life
2:25pm Wednesday 28th August 2013 in News
AN 83-mile walk through some of North Yorkshire’s most spectacular scenery has been given a new lease of life and officially re-opened.
The Centenary Way was opened in 1989 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the creation of the former North Riding County Council.
The development of the new Centenary Way guide has been supported by North Yorkshire County Council, which also maintains much of the public rights of way used by the route.
County Coun Chris Metcalfe, executive member for Countryside Services at North Yorkshire County Council, said: “The Centenary Way offers a tremendous opportunity for both local people and visitors to explore some of the finest countryside England has to offer.”
David Shields, Welcome to Yorkshire’s area director for North Yorkshire, said: “The new Centenary Way guide is a fantastic resource for walkers, allowing them to explore Yorkshire’s countryside and to sample some of the great local produce we have on offer in our cafes, pubs and restaurants along the way.
“We hope it attracts walkers from across Yorkshire and beyond.”
