  • YOUR CASE



    Acclaimed Hollywood director Stevie Spillburger has come to Richmond to film his latest flick 'Louisiana Jones and the Lost Crown of Rich Mound'. However, filming has been delayed by the discovery of a treasure map leading to the location of the actual Crown of the Mound, previously thought to exist only in legend. On the back of the map are a series of clues which need to be solved in order to locate the treasure...

    Richmond



    Situated on the banks of the River Swale and on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, Richmond is a unique historical market town which is well worth a visit. Located on both the walking and cycling Coast to Coast routes across the UK, it is the stopping off point for many an intrepid adventurer and has plenty to offer locals and visitors alike.

    As you explore the Georgian thoroughfares and narrow lanes or 'Wynds', highlights include Richmond Castle, Richmond Falls, the cobbled Market Place, Culloden Tower, The Friary and the Georgian Theatre Royal.

    ADDITIONAL TRAIL INFORMATION



    Route:
    This Trail starts and finishes in Market Place, the large open area in the middle of town. It leads you through narrow lanes and riverside paths offering fantastic views of the town and surrounds.

    Facilities:
    There is a perfect picnic opportunity along the banks of the River Swale about halfway round as well as a small children's playground just before you reach the river. Refreshments are available in and around Market Place. Toilets are available in the main car park (Nuns Close) and at various points along the Trail.

    Extend your trip:
    RIchmond Castle is well worth a visit (Admission times and charges apply). There are also a couple of museums in and around Market Place. For a longer walk, from the bridge across the River Swale, you can extend your route along the riverbank all the way to Easby Abbey before returning along the old railway track and continuing on the Trail.

    Parking:
    The main Long Stay car park (Nuns Close) is on Hurgill Road and is signposted as you enter Richmond. Many other car parks only allow 2 hours of parking which is not long enough to complete this Trail.
