Fishergate Footprints are a series of walking trails to enable local residents who may have limited mobility or live alone and lack the confidence to get out, to once again enjoy their local neighbourhood.
Short, medium and long walks available!
Walking is agentle, but ideal, way to feel connected to your local area. Through it you meet other people, stay physically and mentally active and live a happier, healthier life.
Fishergate Footprints will be a series of walking trails and link to scheduled guided walks covering much loved Fishergate areas including the New Walk, Danesmead Wood, Fulford Cross, York Cemetery, Low Moor Allotments, Fenby Field and Walmgate Stray.
Of varying lengths, from 15 minutes up to an hour long, the walks will include key landmarks and features of the built environment, as well as wildlife and nature to look out for. Also featuring, in the accompanying app, will be personal anecdotes about the area from long-time Fishergate residents, bringing the rich history of the neighbourhood alive.
