Sanctuary Way Walk

N Yorkshire

16 km / 10 miles
Sanctuary Way Walk is a ten mile circuit of Ripon created to celebrate the centenary of Rotary International in 2005. The Rotary Club of Ripon and the Rotary Club of Ripon Rowels installed replica Sanctuary markers close to the original sites which mark the ancient Sanctuary Boundary. These have now been linked to provide a fascinating circular walk around the City of Ripon for the enjoyment of the public. Shorter walks of the scenic section and half circuit routes are also outlined on the down-loadable leaflet.
