The Aislabie Walk

Address

From Fountains Abbey to Hackfall Woods

During the mid 18th century, William Aislabie established a circuit between his estates as Studley Royal and Hackfall with carriageways, bridges and vista forming a private route for his family. The Aislabies created a vast ‘picturesque landscape’ that included Studley Royal, Laver Banks and Hackfall. This circuit remained until the early 19th century thanks to the growing popularity of Hackfall and Studley Royal. While not 100% historically accurate, the Aislabie Walk takes the idea of the original route and employs a little artistic licence to include some other historic points of interest along the way, exploring the historical landscape so you can experience the picturesque circuit of Studley Royal, Laver Banks and Hackfall that William Aislabie envisaged 250 years ago.
