Crosswalk

Crosswalk

York Walking Festival

Street by street, follow a walk around the centre of York.  Each clue leads you to the next street.

The first clue is ‘Follow the poet away from the Places’. Which street name does that suggest? The street will be visible from where you’re standing, so you won’t have many to choose from. Make sure you read the next clue before you start walking and check every junction as you walk down a street, as you may not be on some streets for long.

Clue 14 (in bold) is for a building, not a street.
