Route 657 offers an alternative to following Route 65 - which travels near to the North York Moors and past Felixkirk - and instead takes you through Thirsk.

At Easingwold, Route 657 begins and travels via Raskelf, Dalton and Thirsk.

In Thirsk be sure to check out the museum in the house where Thomas Lord - the founder of Lord’s Cricket Ground -  was born. Explore rooms of exhibits showing local life and industry, and for cricket enthusiasts, there are loads of interesting memorabilia. 

After Thirsk you can either rejoin Route 65 and head to Osmotherley or join Route 71 to Northallerton.
