Path in Hackfall Wood
Path in Hackfall Wood
The PROW path near the northern end of the Hackfall estate. This whole area was purchased by John Aislaby of Studley Royal in 1731 for 906 and was landscaped by him and his son William, who turned the woodland into a 'beautiful wilderness'. Turner painted scenes here and William Wordsworth described the area in a guide written in 1810. In the 19th century a visit to Hackfall would be the premier excursion for gentlefolk staying in Harrogate or Ripon. The area is a SSSI and regarded as a notable example of ancient woodland. It came under the care of the Woodland Trust in 1989 and restoration work is under way.
