About Bishop Wilton Wold

Bishop Wilton Wold is the highest point of the Yorkshire Wolds in the East Riding of Yorkshire, England. The summit, known as Garrowby Hill, lies about 5 miles north of Pocklington. Although the actual highest point is by the main road, and unattractive, the rest of this walk is a fine introduction to the region. This is a relatively easy circular walk that works well in either direction.
