Last week our walking group walked from the Sun Inn to John O’Gaunts Castle, we were planning to walk from Fewston reservoir, but closed roads due to resurfacing scuppered those plans! We managed to meet up and decided to start the walk a little bit further on at the Sun Inn.
John O’Gaunts is a ruined Royal hunting lodge at Haverah Park towards Harrogate. It is next to the Beaver Dyke reservoir, it was a lovely walk across fields and down old lanes to the reservoir.
We walked all the way round the reservoir, crossing the old dam, before stopping for lunch next to a ruined farmhouse. We were delighted to see a deer just nearby, but we weren’t quite so keen on the cows!
After our walk we sat outside the Sun Inn with a drink, chatting and enjoying the beautiful mackerel sky.
