Brayton Barff

Covid-19 update

In accordance with government guidance, our recreational sites and car parks remain open during the national lockdown for people to exercise locally. We ask that you follow the latest guidance to help keep yourself, our key workers and others safe. In the current lockdown this includes:

  • Please do not travel to one of our sites if it isn’t local (which the government has defined as the village, town, or part of a city where you live).
  • Please only visit to exercise with your household, your support bubble, or to meet one other person.

If you do plan to visit, we continue to request that you are respectful of our sites, staff members, other visitors and local communities:

  • Please maintain social distancing throughout your visit.
  • Please follow any instructions on signage around the site.
  • Please follow designated paths. The paths are there to keep you and our key workers safe.
  • Make sure you take any litter home with you and do not light any BBQs or fires.
  • If the car park is full, please do not park on verges or on the road as this causes traffic issues and can block important access for operational vehicles or the emergency services.

All of our toilet facilities are currently closed so please be mindful of this when visiting.

Brayton Barff can be reached by travelling a few miles to the west of Selby, just south-east of Thorpe Willoughby. Yorkshire Water’s free car park is off Barff Lane, less than a mile to the west of Brayton (please note - there is a height barrier at the entrance). This woodland surrounding a covered reservoir is frequently visited for recreational activities such as walking, admiring the scenery and bird watching.

The undulating paths around the site are wide and well-surfaced, with no barriers to access for wheelchair and pushchair users such as steps and stiles. Climbing to the top of the hill offers visitors a rare viewpoint of the surrounding area, with its significant height relative to the miles and miles of flat land around it.
