Bishopthorpe, York. Moor Farm (THS)
Time & Location
About the Event
Bishopthorpe is a small village just a short distance from the historic City of York but enjoys a rural feel close to the River Ouse where the riverbank is home to kingfishers, great crested grebes and the patient observer might even catch a glimpse of the Otter.
Sheffield DA invites all members to our Temporary Holiday Site in the beautiful village of Bishopthorpe. This THS offers a flat field with excellent public transport links to the City of York and beyond. Bus stop for York just 5 min walk from the site.
Sustrans York to Selby cycle route passes close to the site on a mainly traffic-free path using the old East Coast Mainline railway trackbed through the Vale of York towards Selby. A perfect route for families and novice cyclists.
The village is home to a small group of shops and pubs. As the village name suggests the grade 1 listed Bishopthorpe Palace is the official residence of the Archbishop of York, with successive occupants in residence since 1241.
