Hi Everyone,

Getting itchy feet so thinking of going to York or somewhere in that area this weekend, so can anyone recommend a couple of places to wild camp?

Regards,
Del

Outside the centre, the road that runs down the side of the racecourse, then head out towards the A64 to the P and R, about 5-40 return for two. Or

Lay-by on the A19 not far from the junction with the ring road at Rawcliffe Bar, another P and R

53.997504, -1.266345 on the A59 where it crosses the River Nidd. Was a nice spot with a cafe but I have not visited for some time.

Strensall Common offers opportunity....very quiet ( when the army aren't shooting each other)

The A59 near the garage that is being refurbished has a nice away from the road lay by. I use this often with no problems. In fact I am there this weekend. Abit busy up until approx 10pm then quietens down. Trucks tend to leave around 5am...thanks the guy who bapped his horn this am next to my cab:mad2:
There is anot her lay by near the roundabout onto the A1 but itisn't as nice or as far back from the road

Thanks for all the replies, we've just returned from three nights wild camping in Yorkshire.

We spent Thursday night here (https://www.google.co.uk/maps/place/53%C2%B059'51.3%22N+1%C2%B015'43.4%22W/@53.9972499,-1.2646256,490m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0x0!8m2!3d53.997591!4d-1.2620437), Friday night here (https://www.google.co.uk/maps/place/54%C2%B002'49.2%22N+1%C2%B010'30.1%22W/@54.0466792,-1.1774095,489m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0x0!8m2!3d54.047013!4d-1.175017) and Saturday night here (https://www.google.co.uk/maps/place/54%C2%B026'22.9%22N+0%C2%B039'53.0%22W/@54.438901,-0.6670277,482m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0x0!8m2!3d54.4397!4d-0.66472).
