A new bus service will be launched to give walkers and others access to the stunning landscapes and vibrant villages in the Yorkshire Wolds. 

Starting on Easter Saturday 30 March, the Wolds Explorer bus has been developed and funded by East Riding of Yorkshire Council using Government funding it was awarded from the Department for Transport for Bus Service Improvement. 

Service 200, the Wolds Explorer, will run on Saturdays, Sundays, and Bank Holidays from Easter to the end of September between Pocklington and Thixendale, serving the villages of Millington, Huggate and Fridaythorpe along its route.  

With three services a day on Saturdays and two services a day on Sundays & Bank Holidays in each direction, there is plenty of scope for passengers to take a walk through the Wolds Way National Trail, and enjoy a meal and a drink at pubs and cafes in the villages served.  

The Wolds Explorer will be operated by East Yorkshire Buses.

See the service 200 Wolds Explorer timetable on the East Yorkshire Buses website

 If you wish to borrow these (free of charge) please email Clive on or contact any of the Councillors. They measure 6m x 3m.


The Parish Council identifies the most likely difficulties in the area as heavy snowfall prolonged electricity failure

An Emergency Plan will be published in due course.


In the event of severe weather, the Parish Council usually receives regular current reports from ERYC, and we will endeavour to keep the web site up to date with relevant information.

An interactive map of highway clearance priorities can be accessed from the ERYC web site page

This does not work on all versions of Windows; a less clear .pdf is available here.

The primary route in and out of the village is identified as the Warter Road, and if in doubt, that is the route to use.

The Parish Council will endeavour to facilitate the clearance of access from the village to Warter Road, where ERYC does not do so.

The Parish Council provides salt bins to assist with road clearance. Residents are asked to purchase their own supplies for use on private property. Guidance on snow clearance from private and public areas is provided on the ERYC website and here.



Residents should have received a copy of the booklet "Get ready for the unexpected.
