Hedon

The Trail to The Armistice Memorial

Starting point: Old Railway Car Park.

This is a short walk that takes you from the Old Railway Station car park, through a couple of Hedon trails, to reach Hedon’s unique World War 1 Armistice Centenary Memorial.

Knowing this route will be useful when doing other walks later in this series. The what3words addresses refer to a 3-metre square location at each point.

Note: The trails are very muddy and slippery after prolonged rainfall and should only be attempted in wellies or appropriate footwear.

  • Facing the Old Railway Station Car park, then to your left is the Rail Trail (the old railway track that runs all the way through to Hull). It runs along the side of the car park, between it and the old station building itself https://w3w.co/identity.excellent.annual. Walk the trail.

  • You will see buildings through the hedge to your left. As soon as the buildings end and open fields begin, then you need to turn into the field at the main entrance https://w3w.co/seasons.leaky.chuckle (you can join the field at an earlier cut through, but the one linked here is visible from the other side of the field in case you need to make a return journey).

  • Follow the field across to the left-hand corner. Here there is a bridge that crosses the drain https://w3w.co/polishing.square.continues and you now turn right along the trail.

  • Continue along the trail ignoring the footbridge on your left. The trail bears to the left and you come to a railed footbridge https://w3w.co/cocoons.plodded.handed. Cross and go across the field to join the path and turn right along with it https://w3w.co/mooring.schools.licks.

  • Follow the path and on your right, you will see a small hilly area with trees. At the end of the path, you will find a small planted area (Jubilee Gardens) and World War 1 Armistice Centenary Memorial https://w3w.co/caramel.dialects.going.


Coronavirus Note: You should currently minimise time spent outside your home, but you can leave your home to do an exercise walk. This should be limited to once per day, and you should not travel outside your local area. You can exercise in a public outdoor place, by yourself, with the people you live with, with your support bubble (if you are legally permitted to form one) or, when on your own, with 1 person from another household. Whilst walking you should maintain social distancing.
